SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- On the heels of the uptick in crime against the Asian American and Pacific Islander community, Pixar is trying to spread some positivity. It's releasing 2 SparkShorts created by Asian filmmakers on YouTube.

"Wind" is a take on immigration about a boy and his grandmother trying to escape their home.

"Float" tells the story of a father who discovers that his young son is different than other kids. It's a metaphor about autism.
