Antoine, private eye from Montréal, runs, drives, makes decisions and captures sounds. Antoine is five years old and he is blind.
“Antoine is a daring, poetic, and playful docudrama that intimately explores the life of this brilliant and unique boy who is fully integrated into the regular school system in Montreal. Director Laura Bari, with Antoine’s help, skillfully presents children’s uninhibited and creative thought processes while creating an extensive sensory experience for the viewer. Antoine treats his blindness as a minor interference—he’s an embracer of life, not afraid to ingest every possible moment. An inspiration to children and adults alike, Antoine’s real and imaginary lives are cleverly intertwined in this debut film, creating an homage to human resilience, optimism, and creativity.” Sara Nodjoumi, TriBeCa Film Festival
