Our Parents Want The Best For Us.

But from the moment we’re born, society expects something else.

First, they want us to crawl.

Then, just when we’ve started crawling, they want us to stand.

The second we’re standing, they want us to walk. And then run. And then talk.

And then we have to go to school. And then… work. 9-5. Sending e-mails. KPIs.

In the pressure of everyday life, what keeps us sane is family. In this award-winning short animated film directed by Daniel Martínez Lara & Rafa Cano Méndez, a father and son learn that they need each other to stay colourful. Watch it right here!


Even though there isn’t a single word of dialogue in the 8 minutes of Alike, the music and animation (created entirely on the free and open-source software Blender) make us feel all fuzzy inside. Give your parents a hug today.
