Etienne and Sara

Canada, 1984 (MIFF 1984)

Director: Pierre Hébert

Sara is born. Eighteen month old Etienne comes into a sense of his own identity. A film poem in three parts on the painful realisation that children, with their boundless energy, are slowly drawn into the world around them; and that birth, life and search for meaning is an endless struggle.
