I met a friend for lunch in early January of this year. Conversation turned to an acquaintance of hers that was involved in an animated film. She told me that the writer/director and the rest of their team were hoping for an Oscar nomination for “Hair Love“. “This is a 6 minute animated short film that centers around the relationship between an African-American father, Stephen, his daughter, Zuri and her hair.”
The film not only got the nomination in January but Matthew Cherry and Karen Rupert Toliver received an Oscar for their film. Take 6 minutes out of your day and watch the love between a father and his daughter.
