Movie Description

Shine is an animated short film which visualizes a symbolic fight for the preservation and use of the Lithuanian language in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The boy protagonist leads the viewer along this poetic ode to the nation and its difficult struggle to keep its language alive. Different stages in the struggle – press prohibition and book smuggling in the Russian Empire, Stalin‘s mass deportations to Siberia, movements for independence from the USSR – are rendered in beautiful stop-motion images inspired by the works of Lithuanian painters.
