an ode to Relationship.
Brotherhood is a visual poem that serves as an ode to relationship. This stop-motion animation utilizes clay and paint to depict the abstracted experience of the author as a brother in a group of four boys. This optical poem is syncopated to a musical composition and together, the characterization of motion reinforced by music will underline the emotional significance of developing, losing sight of and then rediscovering Relationship. The indirect narrative is concerned with the importance of familial connection, but ultimately, the film approaches Relationship in the metaphysical sense. How we owe our very identities to that which we relate. If a universal truth exists, it's that every thing relates to everything else. Perhaps we are only able to understand ourselves as unique by re-examining the relationship between ourselves and the world through us. To those dear to us; especially in times of change and adversity..
