TIME FOR AN INSPIRATIONAL MOMENT

“This film was really born from watching our kids grow up, which is not easy,” the writer-director said in his speech. “Anyone out there who’s in junior high, high school, working it out, suffering — there are days you’re gonna feel sad, you’re gonna feel angry, you’re gonna be scared. That’s nothing you can choose, but you can make stuff. Make films. Draw. Write. It’ll make a world of difference.” - Pete Doctor
