Cave Small Cave Big
Narrative, 11 minutes, 2017
Directed by Joële Walinga

Cave Small Cave Big is a film written by five-year-olds Madeline Harker and Adelaide Schwartz. Made to respect the gravity of the material, the film jumps from character to character as they cope with the transience of ownership, capturing that moment in a young mind when new muscles are stretched to grapple with ideas about possession and loss.
