Pixar’s ‘Wind’ honors Korean grandmother’s sacrifices to get her sons to America

The two main characters of “Wind,” the latest short released from Pixar’s innovative SparkShorts program, are a grandmother and grandson who live on giant rocks, are trapped in an endless hole and are working together to find a way out. They represent the grandmother and father of the writer and director of “Wind,” Edwin Chang.

“It was inspired by my grandmother,” Chang explains. “She was a single mother after the Korean War, and it’s inspired by everything she did take care of her kids and my dad, feed them, educate them and eventually sending them all the way to the U.S. for a new life.”
