A traditional family breakfast on Sunday. Everybody tries desperately to duck this family obligation, but in vain: The family tradition will not be broken.

A view to the Legacy study: Interviewees in favour of family generally also wished to be able to spend more time with them. The findings of the Legacy study in relation to shared meals are both touching and tragic. On the one hand, Germans consider eating together so important that they highly recommend future generations do so, yet at the same time they have difficulty integrating this aspect into everyday life in the present. They fear that joint eating rituals will decrease even further in future. This short film addresses this longing for social cohesion, for shared meals, which simply can no longer be fulfilled owing to a lack of time and the fixation on the self.

You can decide who will receive the audience award in the film contest about the Legacy Study. Voting is possible from November 15 to November 22 (12 pm CET) – simply give a “Like” to your favourite short film. Meanwhile, a jury will select three works as well.
