this FRIDAY, JANUARY 25 - 7:30pm
SPECIAL SCREENING OF SISTER (L'ENFANT D'EN HAUT).
Followed by a post screening discussion with
Le Professeur Kevin Elstob, Coffee & pastries.
Every day, twelve-year-old Simon takes the cable car up to the mountains
where the slopes bristle with the hustle and bustle of winter season
tourists. He pokes about in hotel wardrobes and changing rooms looking for
something to eat in rucksacks, but what he’s really after are skis that he
can turn into cash. Whenever he talks to holidaymakers or hotel staff, he
tells them that his parents died in a car accident and that he lives alone
with his sister. Louise, the young woman who lives in the apartment in the
valley has no idea what Simon gets up to all day long. Their odd
relationship alternates between quarrels and tenderness. Ursula Meier sets
her second feature-length drama against the backdrop of a popular tourist
destination in the Alps. From the broad, anonymous mass of people, she has
distilled the story of one child who believes he has found a way to offset
his breadline existence. This portrait of a boy on the brink of puberty,
poised between deceit and an unquenchable need for love and tenderness, is
at the same time an exploration of the contradictions and hidden depths of
an ostensibly prosperous world.
