This little film brought me to tears.
It’s about 11 minutes of your life well spent as you view a young boy’s imagination and ability to play. He has an awesome dad who just allows his son to use objects with no monetary value to create an innovative cardboard arcade!!!
Caine is the kid who will never be bored in life. Caine is the person who will overcome disappointments and will find ways to overcome tricky situations. Caine is a genius as the film-maker states.
Why did this bring me to tears?
Because it is a welcome relief from the consumerism that is blastered at parents that says “children must have this!!” For goodness sake the kid is using cardboard boxes and things that would otherwise be discarded as worth nothing!!!
It is also a wonderful to see this dad give his son the opportunity to create and not just state it as rubbish. It also impressed me, how when Caine asked for a claw machine his dad replies “Just make one”.
As a result, Caine uses his brain and makes one!!!!!!
