GSFF Online: Family Shorts Week 3


Description of image

The Easter Holidays are coming to an end, but the current lockdown will continue for at least three more weeks. Far from ideal, but all the more reason to bring you another week of entertaining Family Shorts

This week our selected animations are all about parent-child relationships and how we learn from each other. Sure, parents care for their kids and teach them the ways of the world, but on the other hand the young ones might nudge the adults to be a little more adventurous and imaginative...

Family Shorts are suitable for all ages.

Hippo Hop  |  Patxi Exequiel Aguirre  |  Germany  |  2015  |  3.5min
Once under the heating sun of Anran, a sweating hippo mother walked into the cooling water of the river. Her little hippo kid wanted to do the same but it found out soon enough that it was too small to walk like his mother. On the bottom of the river it woke the attention of one little fish... and then again another fish, and then two fish. Together they thought up a solution.
