I started this project because I was looking for a relevant subject for this day and age.
We always talk about the outcome of indoctrination; “My life in a cult” or the latest terrorist attack. We never talk about the process.
In this animation short I want to show the subtle ways of childhood indoctrination.
In many cases parents don’t indoctrinate their children because they hate them, it’s the opposite.
They just want the best for the kids by bringing them up with their theology or world view. They are doing it out of love. The process of indoctrination is hard to see on the outside.
There is never just one red flag, there are however a lot of little pink ones that together can make a real impact on a child.
