LITTLE BOY

Isild Le Besco

Sarajevo.

The child is alone, he's five years old. His home is his grandmother's home.

She is the one who takes care of him.

He's wandering around the city to feed the puppies on the street and to go to piano and karaté.

At Vječna Vatra he warms up his hands close to the fire. Then he goes back home by tramway.

It's night, he's alone again in the fog of Sarajevo.

Three years later, she shot Charly, followed by Bas-Fonds, a frontal film based on true events selected at Locarno in 2010.
