The most emotionally resonant and visually striking of the nominees, “Adam and Dog” marks the directorial debut of Disney animator Minkyu Lee. Set in the Garden of Eden, his poignant and painterly meditation on companionship, jealousy and devotion traces the initial meeting between the first man and his best friend.
