Scene from the film Their Voices

Their Voices

  • Poland
Audio Tracks 

In her movie Eri Mizutani invites us to experience mysterious world, carefully hidden from us behind the walls of the polish boarding school. The young students have their own magic world, hardly accessible for the others, the "normal" ones. By a subtle observation and without a spoken word we access their everyday life throughout the year. Getting to know their habits, gestures and facial expressions we access the environment full of acceptance, understanding and airiness - so different from the world outside. Film allows us to share the childrens’ emotions, their visions of the world and eventually, to hear their voices.
