Top of page

Part of a series of television programs including interviews with the directors of short animated films as well as the films in their entirety. This video includes: Children Speak (directed by Bozena Heczko and Georgine Strathy): Animation is used to illustrate the voices of six- and seven-year-olds as they discuss death, bereavement, creation and their personal cosmologies (9 min. 18 sec.); and Alchemists/Des Alchimistes (directed by Heidi Blomkvist): The themes of life, death and rebirth; creation and destruction; permanence and impermanence, spontaneity and control are treated in an impressionistic and powerful way in this reflection on creativity, relationships, and the environment. A film without words.
