Really fascinating!
14 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a very interesting little documentary by director Godfrey Reggio.

We sit and observe a group of children watching television. What they are watching is not known, but the expressions on their faces speak volumes. It shows how people are literally transfixed by what they see on screen and how, at such an early age, television is such a powerful thing. Adults watching may begin with the notion that the televisions effect on the young mind is extremely intense, but the short proves that it doesn't totally wear off as you get older.

While watching it I realised that my expression probably wasn't too dissimilar to those of the children. Reggio plays a trick on the audience here, generating a similar reaction in those we are watching the documentary to the kids on screen.

We are reminded while watching it that what we see in documentaries is to a degree set up. The lighting is carefully positioned and the children's faces are at times very dark on one side and light on the other, this does contribute to the effect on the audience also.

A really fascinating and effective short film, but one that is incredibly simple too!
