Forgotten Paradise (Short 2014)

Have you forgotten Paradise, the promised place? This fun and heartfelt dose of wisdom might help you remember your home.

In search of the answer to some of the most important questions in life, two young boys, 8 and 10 years old, put into action their creative skills; they decide to make a film about fear and loneliness. Research, a spirit of adventure and pure child-like reasoning results in a surprising turn of events. A hearty, emotionally uplifting comedy with poetic elements of spiritual awakening.

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all” Aristotle

Forgotten Paradise is an emotionally uplifting poetic piece seeking the attention of our youngest audiences. This ‘children’ genre film with simplistic and age-appropriate content incorporates adventure, fantasy and imagination elements in a realistic manner from the point of view of children creating stories and making films. It demonstrates a moral massage based on the concepts of fear and loneliness. We attempt to decompose these feelings to find the real essence in them and then conclude that such feelings are but the creation of our own minds.

The idea was born from the desire to exploit “fear/s”, which govern the majority of our life as human beings; these feelings/emotions block our growth, our development, our achievement path and more. Thus the need to teach our children to perceive ‘fear’ differently from an early age.
