Punto de Vista 2021 Winners
Direction: Eric Pauwels
A film made with wet eyes from beginning to end. Following the death of his mother, the filmmaker, Eric Pauwels, dedicates this heartfelt love letter in the form of a film to her, aware of the fact that the world has changed totally following her disappearance: his own world but also the outside world. Through the images that he keeps of her, everyday objects and childhood memories, attention is taken back to their mother-child relationship. Poetic evocation is the best mechanism for remembering. Guided by ephemeral feelings and literary quotations, we are given an intimate diary in which his family file, staging and domestic images are combined to wisely reflect on how to learn to look at our world through the eyes of those who are no longer with us.
