There are many films made in the category of short animation. But very few have a message for humanity from a higher perspective. The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse is one of such films that speaks to the true purpose of life. This beautiful Animation short won a BAFTA for best animation short film and is also nominated for an Oscar.

Said so, the film takes us through the journey of a boy to find a place called home. In many ways a journey to find the place in our own heart. To find courage to explore humanity, empathy and kindness and act on it.

The film is based on Charlie Mackesy’s comic strip with the same name and directed with him by Peter Bayton. This Short film is distributed by Apple TV in the US and BBC in the UK.
