Growing up as she walks down the sidewalk, director and animator Celia Bullwinkel‘s Sidewalk is a sweet and sentimental short that has a powerful and life-affirming message. Confronting her changing body, the woman learns to love herself in the face of leery men and damaging storefront advertising.
