Faded has an unusually melancholy tone for a film that’s essentially for kids. It’s like the short, stop-motion version of Bridge to Terabithia.

Nominated for Best Animated Film at the 2007 YoungCuts Film Festival, the film is about a dream a little girl has about her deceased brother. In the dream, she’s wandering in the woods when she’s visited by her brother’s ghost. The siblings play a game, and when they touch, his hand fades away.

The movie is a poignant story about coping and loss; with each passing year, the brother literally fades from view. The design of the characters (as well as the score) gives the film the feel of a mythic Native American story.
