PETIT HOMME (Little Boy Tom)
a film by seba stolarczyk
/ about the film
Tom is a teenager born and raise in Germany. He represents an actual queer archetype dealing with daily issues and through different mirrored characters - from different backgrounds and countries - we follow his quest towards self-acceptance and troubled identity.
This film delivers an intimate portrait of different queer personalities through different forms of escape and metaphors - growing up in a world of brainstormed minds transforming the sensitive ones into out-casted loners, desperate and left behind.
PETIT HOMME splits the story of one individual into multiple ones, creating a bound and pointing the recurrent issues that queer-identified people have to deal with in a common entity.
Created and assembled like a collage, this film explores « archives memories » in a fictional story line telling truth, sharing doubts, making choices, and after all showing life.
PETIT HOMME was first screened and part of District Berlin’s program Undisciplinary Learning - Remapping The Aesthetics of Resistance (Sept. 8 - Nov. 19, 2016) and since travelled in different events and screenings in Europe.
