sufjan + babies = win

So ok, at first a movie about babies sounds a bit weird. But a movie about four babies from completely different cultures that follows them from birth to 1 year old - that's a cool concept. Add in a soundtrack by Sufjan Stevens, and if this trailer doesn't make you clucky, you're not human.

The kids are from Mongolia, Japan, Namibia and San Fransisco. Apparently the film has no narration, and relies on the juxtaposition of different scenes from the babies' lives to make its point about human nature.

It's showing at the Sydney Film Festival in June. I think it's only on once or twice, so I don't know if I'll make it. But it looks pretty awesome.
