The pair behind Pixar’s Oscar nominated short “Sanjay’s Super Team” talks personal inspiration and hybrid identities

“I was showing him a little drawing I did of what my dad did every morning. I did a drawing of him praying at a shrine, and in the same drawing there is little Sanjay, you know, worshipping his Gods that were on the TV. John saw that and was like: ‘That’s great! Let’s make that. Just tell your story, tell the truth of you and your father.'” – Sanjay Patel
