The Eternal Children

October 26, 2007

The Eternal Children‘ is a documentary directed by David Kleijwegt (2006). Shown in 6 parts below, it’s about a group of musicians, including Devendra Banhart, Anthony & The Johnsons, CocoRosie and others, who share a common spirituality and lyrical understanding of the world.

Young and colourful musicians, ‘with their eyes wde-open’, but not naive, but with hope; a young generation that shifts away from the rage and depression of early 90s, as Anthony Hegarty remarks.

Someone said once, ‘when I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.’

    I am in love with the vision of cocorosie and the eternal children
    because the idea give me breath in this world of speed violence and grownups who are not to be reached.
    Thank you it inspires me
    love and light

      I believe the last quote is by C.S. Lewis.

    OK, 1 Corinthians 13:11 says “When I became a man, I put away childish things”. CS Lewis just added a phrase.
