In life, everyone expects us to have good grades in school and work our butts off later at work. We, of course, expect the same from others, getting so used to this idea that we even teach our children to do so. What counts in modern society, however, isn’t always what is important in our hearts.
This short film called “Alike”, by Madrid-based animators Daniel Martínez Lara and Rafa Cano Méndez, talks about how the society we live in kills creativity and only tries to mold us into this one, always perfectly functioning form. It’s also about parenthood and how important it is to let kids go into their own individual directions without taking away their vivid imagination.
