“Shine” is an animated short film, which pictures a symbolic 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 beautiful stop motion pictures, which are inspired by the works of Lithuanian painters, who worked during the Soviet time.
