What does the world look like through the eyes of a six-year-old child? A journey into the subconscious of an innocent and ingenuous child, as he falls asleep and drifts into the depths of his own mind. An intimate, gentle film that explores fatherhood by masterfully combining seemingly uncombinable elements: documentarism and experimentalism together with an overall notion of family film. Visually captivating and emotionally engaging, Milstein’s film is pushing contemporary documentary filmmaking to a new, bracing aesthetic and artistic level. A short but extremely layered film study of children's innocence, vitality and transience that is perfectly fitting for the big cinema screens.
