“Police brutality seen through the eyes of a child.” Graduation film made by Myriam Obin at Concordia University, 2015.
Obin’s artistic statement on the film:
I wanted to make a film feels a bit like a dream, showing a peaceful protest being repressed by the system in place, but from the point of view of a neutral spectator, Eloïse. At first, the crowd in the city brings this impression of creation and action, but this quickly becomes too overwhelming for the little girl…At some point the tension just keeps on rising and the more Eloïse feels powerless, the smaller she gets. The worst part is, she does not know if her sister is caught in the battle. Since Eloïse can’t recognize people, anybody could be her sister.
