"Ponette" enters the mystery of a 4 year old little girl's mind who has all of her intelligence but little experience and information to cope with her mother’s sudden death. While the adults around her fail at giving her the explanations she needs, she tries to find answers in the world of children, in their games and beliefs.
A masterpiece about children that stays resolutely within the focus of the child's mind in order to observe the process by which their intelligence builds their personalities, their beliefs, their strategies and their minds. "In the matter of child acting," writes Stanley Kauffmann, "this is the most extraordinary picture I know."
PONETTE won 11 awards including 4 awards at the Venice Film Festival.
In French with English subtitles
Next Screening: Sunday July 16th
