Excerpt from Kid-Thing. Childhood is a stage of life that has long fascinated filmmakers. From THE 400 BLOWS to Home Alone, directors have explored youth with their own signature style. In their second feature film, writer/director David Zellner and his brother Nathan, the film's co-star, producer and cinematographer, take us down the rabbit hole of the messy, unformed and capricious nature of young minds. Annie is a young girl living in Austin, Texas, doing what most kids do: riding bikes, chucking dirt at cars and generally stirring up mischief. With an absentee father, she has a lonely existence. When she stumbles upon an old well in the woods and hears a woman's voice calling for help from the depths below, she's interested, but not necessarily in helping. As fascinating a film about childhood that has come along in recent years, Kid-Thing is a haunting and evocative work of art, anchored by a brilliant performance by the young Sydney Aguirre.
