Eux et moi
SC 9.4/10 

Year: 2001
Country: France
Section: documentary
Tags: boy, girl
Description: For the last few years an ethnographer has regularly gone to a small New Guinea village. He speaks the languages of these people who walk around naked with bows and arrows, who dispute over forest gardens with axes, and who have a short fuse like our own French peasants. He knows them well, but a certain discomfort subsists between them. They seem to be interested only in his toothbrush, they too often take him for a cash machine.
He finally comes to realise, while filming the monetary dealings and negotiations he has with them, that all of this, what he didn't want to see and was ashamed of, is in fact what bound them together. Only after a detour through impurity and self-interest could they find common ground.
We discover people who are no more savage than our next door neighbours. We end up forgetting that they live so far away. We watch with bemused smiles as the ethnographer and these people, who didn't boo him off the stage, get their feet wet in a friendship made the hard way.

Year: 1939
Country: Denmark
Section: documentary
Tags: bathing, boy, girl, medical check, summer camp, sunbathing
Description: The sale of Christmas tags is the basis for the establishment and operation of the Christmas tag homes around Denmark. The purpose of the homes is to house and help vulnerable and particularly needy children. Many of the Christmas tag children come from the big cities. Funds may be tight here, and the children may be left to fend for themselves and life in the wretched backyards. At the Christmas mark homes, they can receive care, fresh air and get back to work after illness. The film follows daily life at the various Christmas mark homes in Denmark: Lindersvold in Faxe, the Mørkøv home in Northwest Zealand, Fjordmark by Flensborg Fjord, Holbølls Minde by Svendborg, the Hobro home by Mariager Fjord and the Christmas mark home in Juelsminde.
Several of the recordings can also be seen in the film 'The Christmas Tag Film' from 1949.
