Teenager Jake spends most of his time indoors playing video games, so his mum decides that a present might persuade him to venture outdoors. Jake is initially delighted to find that she’s bought him a puppy, but a three-legged dog isn’t quite what Jake had in mind. However, as the dog plays happily with its ball, Jake comes to realise that appearances aren’t everything. ‘The Present’ is an acclaimed short film, the director of which has since gone on to work in the animation department at Disney on titles including ‘Moana’ and ‘Frozen II’.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
