CHILDREN ON FIRE 2: CHILDREN ON FIRER

Children on Fire returns with more of the strangest and most unconventional films to deal with ideas of childhood, or play and growth, imagination and personal responsibility. Though many of them flirt around the edges of the standard “coming out age” movie, not are quite so committed to easy answers about the mysteries of youth and the painful passage into young adulthood. In this second series of troubling youth movies and/or movies about troubling youth, we have selections both heartwarming (Alexandre Rockwell’s Little Feet) and horrifying (Bill Lustig’s Uncle Sam), oblique (The Deagol Brothers’ Make Out With Violence) and downright psychedelic (Russian children’s animation and sci-fi).
