We got La Luna, the latest short film from Pixar! Our trained monkeys at ikono labs had to dig around a bit and the film seems to be out in the french department of Daily Motion only (and maybe it wont be there forever), but right now you can watch the film below (and then share this page with all your Facebook friends, will you?)

La Luna was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film and released with the theatrical release of Brave.

“La Luna” is a fable of a young boy coming of age in the most peculiar circumstances. Tonight is the very first time his Papa and Grandpa are taking him to work. In an old wooden boat they row far out to sea, and with no land in sight, they stop and wait. A big surprise awaits the little boy as he discovers his family’s most unusual line of work. Should he follow the example of his Papa or his Grandpa? Will he be able to find his own way amidst their conflicting opinions and timeworn traditions?

La Luna from Pixar Studios

La Luna: a boy, his father, and his grandfather. At first glance, they are cut from the same mold. They wear overalls and hats; they carry brooms. But the contrast between them reveals their characters. Covered by the signs of age, the two adult men’s eyes cannot be seen. Nor can they see as clearly and widely as the boy, whose large eyes are unobstructed and clear. The grandfather moves his traditional broom with precision; the father wields a push-broom for increased efficiency. Both argue in front of the timid boy, whose curiosity and sense of wonder eventually lead him to discover joy.
