When Pixar animator Bobby Rubio's young son was diagnosed with autism, Rubio says he didn't handle it well. His short film "Float," about a boy who can fly, is based on his years-long journey to accept and celebrate his son's differences. Rubio and producer Krissy Cababa join Forum to talk about "Float" and creating Pixar's first film centered on Filipino-American characters.
