The Eternal Children
‘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.’
