KID
2012, Cinéart, 90 min, Belgium, Dir: Fien Troch

Writer-director Fien Troch’s third feature offers a clear-eyed look at the power - and limitations - of children’s resilience in the face of trauma. On a rural Flanders farm, a single mother struggles to raise her two boys; the family has been on the verge of financial ruin since the woman’s husband abandoned them. After a disastrous turn of events, the youngsters move in with their aunt and uncle. Elder son Billy tries to adjust, but being torn away from his mother hits the 7-year-old Kid (Bent Simons) particularly hard. The Grand Jury Prize winner at this year’s Aubagne International Film Festival, KID is a heartbreaking film about loss, family and the struggle for hope amidst hardship. In Dutch with English subtitles.
