MuMaBoX #37: Enfances

Average: 5 (1 vote)

The child: a subject like any other, in life as in film. But when the child appears on the screen, the adult viewer sees what he has been and will never be: a being in his early life.

This terrible and banal observation of the passage of time is accompanied by a working memory: the projected image is superimposed on that of his own childhood. And for each, according to his/her own history, memories emerge full of tender nostalgia and memories of specific painful moments.

From the newborn (Le corps humain, Alexandre Larose) to adolescence (Dressage, Julika Rudelius), these portraits of children will complement the extensive gallery that was formed from the origins of cinema.
