    • Synopsis
    • VILLADS follows the 6-years old Villads in school and at home. Villads often run into trouble because he loves to play, and most of the times the rules of Villads´ playing are in conflict with the rules of the adult. VILLADS is a modern version of Emil from Lønneberg. Children now adays are to early becoming adults. Free play and the right to be a child, has been replaced by long school days, results-oriented play and direct marketing. iPhones, hysterical Americanized movies and reality TV and social media makes children more conscious in an all too young age.
      VILLADS is a backlash against growing up too fast. A declaration of love for fantasy and play. Even though Villads also must learn the consequences of his playing, so it is the adults, in Villads world, that learn the real lesson: meet the children on their terms.
