Borge Ring - Anna & Bella

Years ago I first came across this short film in a collection of Oscar winning and nominated shorts. There are several that have become my favorite and have watched them many times over and over. But this one always brings a smile and a tear to my face. Such a beautiful story of the lives of two sisters sharing many of life's precious moments.


Just recently the 91 year old director Borge Ring lost his house in a devastating fire in south-east Holland. He and his wife Joanika made it out unharmed but they lost everything, including the Oscar he won for this very short in 1985.

You can read more of the story here on Cartoon Brew.

Borge's official site is here.

A fundraising website has been launched here.
