Through a Child’s Eyes
Awash in images of ethereal beauty, these richly sensorial films evoke the emotions of two children coming to terms with the complexities of the adult world. Winner of the short-film Palme d’Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, Australian director Charles Williams’s ALL THESE CREATURES achieves a cosmic poignancy as an adolescent boy struggles to make sense of the changes that have overcome his mentally ill father. A girl awakens to troubling truths about her enigmatic father in EL SUR, Víctor Erice’s exquisite follow-up to THE SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE, which conveys the wonder and mystery of childhood through stunning, painterly visuals worthy of Vermeer.
