Quote about The Lodge

"[The Lodge] seeks to interrogate how understandings of human/nonhuman bleed into social categories that demarcate humans in hierarchical terms. As a self-reflexive piece that implicates cinema as part and parcel of such problematic boundary making, The Lodge demonstrates how animation can be employed to retool cinema to resist the systems that erect such boundaries."
-- Salma Monani (source)
