After "Inside Out" was awarded an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, its co-director Pete Docter spoke of the need to recognize and respect children's complex emotional lives: "This film was really born from watching our kids grow up, which is not easy... there are days you're going to feel sad. You're going to feel angry. You're going to feel scared. That's nothing you can choose. But you can make stuff. Make films. Draw. Write. It will make a world of difference."
