Betwixt and Between: Children of the Valley / 107 Min. France 2012 / German, French (OmeU)

 

We cannot choose where we come from, who our parents are, or under what circumstances we get raised. But to a certain degree we can choose how we use or reject what has been given to us, and what we, in return, pass on to our children.

Thesis and film focus on a generation of children in their thirties that have been brought up in a community of hippies on the margins of society, and further analyzes the effects their childhood has had on their past and present lives.
