House Of Children. The voices of Zimbabwe's future

A glimpse of life as seen through children at a Zimbabwean care initiative. The only source of information: the children themselves. 

Eschewing a traditional narrative and instead opting for a true to life experience, watching House of Children is like being a participant in a conversation, rather than a fly on the wall. 

We see almost nothing of the children’s surroundings, which has a powerful cumulative effect: the audience is forced to imagine a world entirely from their point of view. 

And like the way a novel slowly awakens using only words, the film similarly restricts our eyes, but opens up the imagination…
