Father and Daughter

Father and Daughter, Michael Dudok de Wit
Beautiful and subtle, Father and Daughter is a 2000 Dutch animated short (8 minutes) about a daughter remembering her father.

Directed, drawn and animated Michael Dudok de Wit, with assistance by Arjan Wilschut and Lisa Flather. There is an interview with Michael Dudok de Wit here.

The film uses minimalist design, softly rendered with touches of monochromatic watercolor, to set a mood perfectly in keeping with its wordless story.

  1. I love minimal animations,but I think the design of this animation is very scary space,specialy for father and daughter story!

    1. I know what you mean, but I think the artist was trying for intensely nostalgic and sad rather than scary.
