Babies by Thomas Balmès( Visual )
21 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Thomas Balmés, from an original idea by producer Alain Chabat, this visually stunning film follows four babies during their first year on earth - from first breath to first steps. Across borders and cultures, from Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo, BABIES re-defines the nonfiction art form and joyfully captures the earliest stages of the human journey that are both unique and universal to us all. Exploring the world of its tiny heroes in locations that are worlds apart - the Namibian savannah, the Mongolian steppe, a Japanese megalopolis and sunny California - Babies makes a universal statement with strength and passion. Babies is a visual and sensorial experience that will reveal the most basic human emotions. Apart from establishing shots of locations and seasons, and close-ups of the baby's physical environment, the film is composed of the unique moments that, as every parent knows, punctuate a child's first year and tell a fascinating story. Every shot tells a story by its content and its framing, confronting the baby with a world that seems gigantic, potentially hostile or simply needing to be explored
