SHINE - animated short
"Shine" is an animated short film, which pictures the  fight for the Lithuanian language during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This is a poetic ode to Lithuania and its difficult struggle to keep the Lithuanian language alive through the historical changes. Dramatic exile to Siberia, Lithuanian book smuggling, various movements for independence - all of it is encoded in the journey full of symbols and cultural heritage.
