CHILDREN OF THE 2011 FRIBOURG INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
Languages of publication
The program of the Fribourg International Film Festival (Switzerland) is not specifically dedicated to children: nevertheless, in March 2011 this particular audience has found its place during the morningscreenings in the cinemas (53 shows for 9 thousand pupils: this fact reveals an educative sensibility of the Festival) and diverse situations of childhood have become subject of most films chosen for the international competition. The Chinese movie Aftershock is a dramatic story of two children, separated by an earthquake; Bi, dung so shows the loneliness of a child in a Vietnamese family where relations weaken; dramatic reminiscences of his childhood mark Morteza in Iranian La maison sous l’eau. A vision of the world of children’s plays and plans devastated by guerrilla war terrifies in Colombian Los colores de la montaña; cruelty of adolescents is one of the themes of the South Korean Poetry. Few of the films have presented a less somber vision: Palestinian documentary Fix Me, Iranian comedy Please Don’t Disturb and a parody Miss Tacuarembó. Despite different cultural contexts, the moviemakers reveal a responsible empathy toward children.
