Charlotte Cardin's “The Kids” is an intensely stunning piece of filmmaking from Kristof Brandl drawing on themes of innocence, pain and love which are all weaved together to create a very special film. At its essence, the video is a universal tale of rebirth and we experience it through the eyes of a young boy in a broken family. Although it is bookended by two surreal scenes and contemplating VFX, it is a human story about how the delicate trajectory of a child’s life hinges on their environment during their upbringing.
