Joyets film trailer
The film Joyets is a celebration of childhood and about the sheer joy of being a child. The intense way in which a child perceives the world is the main inspiration for our film’s form and content. The child who is also a narrator describes the rules of the game, which main characters must obey. Child is also a character accompanying the main couple, a boy and a girl, through the whole story and in funny and naive way comments on their adventures.
In 2005 I found all my childhood drawings which my parents were collecting for years and I felt I had to make those strange creatures - like a two-headed horse or a boy with way too long hands - alive. All characters in film “Joyets” are taken from my childhood drawings.
