08. How the Old Man Learned to Smile

"Highly Recommended. What sets this program apart is the exquisite and lovely artwork by Kanna Aoki that complements the touching story of how children can build trust and self-confidence through imagination and honesty." -Mill Valley Film Festival
Narrated by Peter James Meyers, with original music by Marshall Crutcher, this is the touching story of a little girl, a wonderful tree, and a grouchy old man who is reminded of his youth, when his father constantly yelled at him for playing too loudly. In the end, thanks to the little girl, the old man comes to learn one is never too old to enjoy one's childhood. Author: Uwe Blesching. Illustrator: Kanna Aoki. Produced by Uwe Blesching. 05/10DE PI 15 min.
