(short film screened before Falkenberg Farewell (Farväl Falkenberg))

Quoting InsideOut: "Cédric is an 11-year-old who has stopped talking after his mother's death. His only friend is Bruno, a strange boy stubbornly determined to get Cédric talking again at any price." Bruno propounds, "What we can't see, won't hurt us, and they can't see our angel wings, which will protect us." It's not a literal telling of the story, but a vivid portrayal through Bruno's eyes. Recommended.

Cédric, dir. Sadrac González and Sonia Escolano, Spain 2007, 13 min. video
