Today's short is an excerpt from London-based filmmaker Mikhail Karikis's Children of Unquiet, about a takeover by children of an abandoned workers' village in Devil's Valley, in Tuscany, Italy, site of the first geothermal power plant in the world. To make the film, Karikis employed 45 children, ages 5 to 12, from the region. The film appeared on the shortlist for the 2016 Jarman Award, named after Derek Jarman (1942-1994).
This is a disquieting, provocative film. Additional excerpts may be watched on Karikis's Vimeo channel and at his Website.
