Kind (Child)

In Kind, we enter a distant and out of joint universe littered by somber fairy tales and magic. We find ourselves in a somber forest at the foot of menacing cliffs, a world that precedes good and evil, in which no limits have been set yet. With infantile tics and gestures, a girl who is far too large riding a bike that is far too small for her leads us into her universe on the fraying borders of the unconscious. A state where the earth speaks, where children grow on trees, and where strange events spark curiosity rather than alarming anyone.

After Vader (2014) and Moeder (2016), Kind is the third part of Peeping Tom’s family trilogy that explores the themes or memory, recollections, and the tragic search for links. In Kind, Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier explore the sources of psychosis from the point of view of the child.
