Have a look at these 2 minute films – quite a revelation!

As the filmmaker and photographer Jacob Krupnik says: ‘There’s a tendency to protect our kids from any potential sources of harm, shower them with praise and carefully curate every experience – what happens when we lower our guard and trust things will be alright?’ He describes the films as ‘playful pieces’  – but the subtext is also important: ‘kids are strange, mysterious little people – and they need a bit of danger in their lives – they are built for adventure.’ It is fascinating to see how they manage themselves independently in a range of completely unsupervised situations, and how much they enjoy being given free reign if only for a short while.
