The Children Know

Hope our parents get to see it,
so they'll understand us better

“Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to always and forever explain things to them”. ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPERY
Love, sexuality, life and death, all told through the eyes, faces and voices of children between 9 and 13 years. The new film by Walter Veltroni offers an original way of looking at life from a different angle: pure, touching and honest, as only children can be.
It will move you, make you smile, and marvel at the deep, poetic truth that lies beneath so many unscripted answers given by its cast of very young and real characters.
Each child is interviewed in his/her own room: they show us around, describe the objects, pictures and furniture present and, of course, themselves. The camera helps the viewer see the world through the children's eyes, capturing their point of view-on the “GROWN-UPS” and get to know their future plans, their dreams, and their opinions on the major issues of life: love, family, religion, sexuality.
It is a great way to highlight the differences between cultures, backgrounds, ethnics and origins.
Ultimately, the kids' answers yield big lessons for the grown-ups who take the time to observe them day by day. When asked the question: "What do you need in life to be happy?", little Peter has no doubts: "Dreams".
