(France / 2010 / dir by Thomas Balmès)
From Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo, this stunning film joyfully captures the earliest stages of life that are at once unique and universal to us all.
From birth to first steps, Balmès’s documentary beautifully conveys the differences and similarities between four children growing up in different cultures. Ponijao plays with rocks in her hut, Hattie dances in a baby swing in her apartment, Mari is carried through neon-lit city streets, and Bayar freely explores the animals and plants around him on his family farm. BABIES encourages viewers to reflect upon and revel in the intricacies of culture and the wonders of human life. In French with subtitles.
PG / 79 mins.
