Kid-Thing

de David Zellner

Synopsis

Annie is a ten year old girl who lives on the outskirts of Austin with her father, a loser who barely pays any attention to her. With no adult authority to guide her, Annie wanders through the woods and the city, stealing and breaking things. One day, walking among the trees, she hears the voice of an old lady calling for help from the bottom of a well. Although the girl isn’t sure about how sensible it would be to help the woman, she visits the place daily with provisions and, also, many questions. A daring combination of hyperrealism and mystery, Kid-Thing is surprising because of its formal freedom and, especially, the performance by little Sydney Aguirre.
