Childhood

Allowed 89 minutes 2017 7.1

The award-winning director Margreth Olin's documentary takes place at a preschool. For a year, she follows a group of children at the preschool with her camera, which makes this a documentary about children on the children's terms. Through the camera, Margreth Olin shows how life goes on and how important it is to be present. We are a part of the children's Easter celebrations, games, singing moments and hear how they philosophize about life at large. Jon Asp writes in Svd, "You don't have to be a parent in a crowded, polluted urban environment for Childhood to act as therapy and, in the more unspoken, as a reminder of what an over-performance-based society can lead to." Jenny Teleman writes at Kulturnytt i P1 that the director captures the magic of play in the documentary.
