The Man Who Planted Trees
I was blown away by the beauty, simplicity and earnestness of The Man Who Planted Trees by Frédéric Back, a Canadian animator who won his second Adademy Award for this short film in 1987. The half-hour short can be seen on YouTube (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3), and our library had a couple of copies as well.
This is probably another one that Steve told me a decade ago that I *had* to watch ASAP. Just for the beauty of the animation alone it's worth watching, but the story is inspiring as well.
