a death in a family 

A short film by Puck Litaay 

Styling by Indiana Roma Voss


As our future becomes more individualised we lose what it means to be human: Connection, not to the internet but towards each other. Around a dinner table, we meet a traditional and perfect family. But only on the surface, they appear to be such. They seem to be reduced to simplified, cliché versions of themselves and live in a constant state of numbness in which distance and artificiality are a given. Simple, warm family life has turned robotic and cold. Abstract and alienating scenes bring forward the immense distance within this family and ask the viewer the question: is this what we want?
