Synopsis

What kind of futures can be read in the impersonal fragments of our reality? It’s a question that inevitably gains attention and importance when it’s posed to those who the future, pre-eminently, belongs to. Already in her debut film, “Little Figures” (2003), Sarah Vanagt gauged the historical imagination of children by inviting immigrant children to improvise an imaginary conversation between three historical figures, immortalized as statues, in Brussels. Fifteen years and many transformations later, she decided to reverse the question and ask children to read the future in the elusive imprints of their city. Onto countless abstract patterns, brought to life with the help of an old magic lantern, children from Brussels, Athens and Sarajevo project their own impressions, dreams and fears. The result is a form of “magical reading”, as the perception of unforeseen correspondences and constellations that confront us with the undercurrent of the present.

Sinopsis

Kakve budućnosti mogu biti pročitane iz bezličnih fragmenata naše stvarnosti? To je pitanje koje nesumnjivo izaziva pažnju i važnost kada je postavljeno onima kojima ta budućnost prvenstveno pripada. Već je kroz svoj debitantski film “Little Figures” (2013) Sarah Vanagt odmjeravala historijsku imaginaciju djece pozivajući troje malih imigranata da improviziraju imaginarni razgovor tri historijske ličnosti, utjelovljene u statuama u Briselu. Petnaest godina i mnogo transformacija poslije, odlučila je pitanja preobratiti i zamoliti djecu da iščitaju budućnost u neuhvatljivim otiscima grada. Na bezbrojnim apstraktnim uzorcima oživljenim čarolijom stare magične lampe, djeca iz Brisela, Atine i Sarajeva projektuju vlastite impresije, snove i strahove. Rezultat je svojevrsno “magično očitanje” kao percepcija nepredviđenih susreta i konstelacija sa kojima se suočavamo ispod površine sadašnjosti.
