The Light and the Little Girl

This beautiful and poignant insight in to the mind of a child is something quite special.  The moment when the immaterial is desired but cannot be possessed is pivotal in the development of self-awareness. This is captured, perhaps as it should be, without words - how, after all, can one express a glimpse of infinity with sound? It was written by Jih-E Peng and Guy Pooles. As one commentator has very nicely put it, this film is nine thousand, three hundred, and sixty frames of something we can never have again: a child's innocence.
