The Night and the Kid

La nuit et l'enfant

Directed by David Yon
France, Qatar, 2015


A child throws stones at the moon. They say the sun has gone and will only return when anxiety has disappeared. Until then, the stars are there to offer comfort. So the child counts the stars in the night’s endless expanse on the slopes of the Algerian Atlas mountains.
