Perhaps we were all once a child’s height, but most of us have forgotten how to see the world through a child’s eyes. Discover Nana, a quiet and innocently voyeuristic look at the way a four-year-old sees the world she lives in. Set in the modest, yet poetic landscape of rural France, this character-driven narrative chronicles the daily activities of Nana. Tucked away in the woods, she lives in a stone cottage with her Mama. Together they collect wood, make fires, bathe, and read books before bedtime. However, Nana is a surprisingly independent child, content with playing alone, amusing herself through her imagination and intrapersonal dialogue. But when she returns home from school one day to a house of silence, we find out how truly self-sufficient she can be. Watching Nana is like spying on a child who doesn’t know you’re watching them – a little enchanting, yet at the same time, a little heartbreaking.
