Olivier Smolders’ Seuls

In 1989, avant-garde filmmaker Olivier Smolders completed this film of children’s portraits.  It is at once haunting and beautiful in its frank depiction of children’s behavior.  Smolders remains one of the lesser-known directors of international cinema, and is often compared by critics to David Lynch and Peter Greenaway.
