If we were able to trace our ancestors beyond the neat branches of our immediate family trees, we would find something more like a mesh of interwoven roots spreading all across the world. This film tells the story of us all, whether we come from a family that's stayed in the same area for generations, or have travelled half way around the world in search of somewhere safe to live.
This short stop-motion animation uses music, words and images to explore questions like these. Suitable for all age groups.
Animation by Rosie Wyllie
Music and Sound by Katharine Seaton

We believe in the power of film to open up opportunities for dialogue and community reflection. We’ve designed post-screening discussion guides for all films, to be used as a starting point for conversations inspired by our Moving Worlds programme
