Directed by Pixar animators, Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj, short film Borrowed Time tells the story of a sheriff who returns to the scene of a tragic accident, many years ago. Set to the background of a stunning, atmospheric canyon, the story is so rich in the character and heart we’ve come to expect from the Emeryville Studio as the sheriff recalls a heartbreaking moment from when he was a boy. The directors wanted to “make something that contested the notion of animation being a genre for children specifically,” with the story slowly coming together before the devastating finale. It’s a magnificent piece of work, and we can expect great things from the duo in years to come, a more adult film like this would certainly be very interesting under Pixar’s helm.
