Poem "Adults" by Kārlis Vērdiņš, translation to English: Ieva Lešinska, voice: Robin Ellis.
Tampere Film Festival (TFF), National Competition 11
11+12 March, 2016, Plevna 5, 2
TFF: "Recycling for the poetry: Latvian poem combined with left out footige from directors previous work. Feed me, adults, I no longer remember your names, yet I recognize every feature in your cross faces. For many long years I listened and learned, there is much I could tell you now, yet the spoons keep getting in the way – interrupted mid-word, I swallow it all unsaid, with my mouth half-open, my mouth full of wonders."
AA: A short film response to a poem by Kārlis Vērdiņš. Noise in the evening. Imagery in low definition. Fast edit. A sculpture park. Children, fast montages of lights of the night traffic. Impressions, warm colours, night lights, potato harvest, a farmers' market, children having a break, farm life, children's world.
