Join us at this year’s Birds Eye View festival for a screening of Mia Engberg’s Belleville Baby. We’re big fans of Engberg, we played Dirty Diaries a couple of year’s ago at LSFF, so we are delighted to be back, introducing this screening of her latest film. Hope to see you there. Here’s what it’s all about.
Director: Mia Engberg. Sweden, 76 mins
An unexpected call from a volatile former lover inspires Mia to reminisce about a turbulent spring in Paris – from riots and vespas to a cat named Baby. Intricately editing footage shot on everything from Super 16 to cell phones alongside an evocative score, Engberg weaves memory, loss, politics, class, ageing, cynicism and hope into one deeply affecting tapestry. A true gem of a film about love, time, and things that get lost along the way.
