Lineage is an animated short about human relations. It shows a world where the characters are made out of wires, a world where everybody is literally hanging on the connections they have with each other. And with these images it shows how dependent we are on these relations.
The film shows a recognizable and universal theme; a person gets stuck between two others who move apart. And this happens to the most dependent person imaginable. The film shows the point of view of a young child during the divorce of his parents.
These can be turbulent, insecure and painful times, the child loses total control of the situation. This an image that has been shown many times before. But it doesn’t have to end there. What if the parents shift their attention back to the child?   A child might conquer its fear, he might find control, balance and even solid ground.
These are the festivals that have added 'Lineage' to their official selection.
