3. For the birds – Pixar.
A popular Pixar short film was released in 2000 and won Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 2001.
The movie brings laughter to viewers through unexpected situations. Behind the humor that the film brings is the sense of respect for the difference.

The situation is reversed when the very preconceptions of the little birds cause them to be in trouble when trying to expel a new friend.
Through this short clip, we understand how to cherish each other’s differences, not judge, isolate or boycott the crowd and then realize that the majority is not always right late.
