Eventbrite - Carmen + The Children of Sisyphus



World Premiere
Olatz González Abrisketa | | 4 mins

A black sock, white thread, a needle, a thimble and a plea: 'Santitum zaina urtu, zaina bere lekuen sartu', in a mixture of Latin and Basque. This is the full extent of Carmen's treatment for the healing of sprains. The mantra has to be repeated three times, on three different days. Healing rituals live on in the Basque Country, a place where magical practices have been transmitted from woman to woman for generations. For the time being, Carmen has no successor.

The Children of Sisyphus

World Premiere Watch trailer
Didier Minne | | 56 mins

An encounter with the daily life of children with autism or psychosis. It is a glimpse, from the inside, of a world that has rarely been observed so freely, and for such a long time. Over an entire year in a day-care centre in the South of Belgium, we share in the children's evolution and regression, experience their moments of joy and grief. During the long preparation that precedes the moment when one of the kids leaves the centre to attend school, we come to see that the caregivers are torn between their pride in his achievements, and their apprehension to let him go.
