The Boy Who Lived before
This Seattle-made feature explores the mind of a boy who deeply contemplates his identify, both in terms of who the kind of person he wants to be, and the kind of person he might have already been. Meet Cody, who has memories of a previous life. These memories present themselves in the forms of visions, dreams, and daily routines. In an attempt to understand where he comes from, Cody delves into the online world, eventually attracting the interest of a budding film crew looking for outrageous stories. Codys big brother Oliver is his confidant, guide and co-questioner as the pair move through changing Seattle landscapes. Family dynamics, urban life and identity are all in flux.
Notes for parents: This film incorporates elements of documentary and experimental film into a work of fiction, and portrait of a child who deeply questions the nature and purpose of his existence.
