The Smell of Burning Ants (1994)

A haunting documentary on the pains of growing up male. It explores the inner and outer cruelties that boys perpetrate and endure. The film provokes the viewer to reflect on how our society can deprive boys of wholeness.

John Milton

A visual essay of found footage that demands some attention and perhaps afterthought to be appreciated. If I remember correctly I wasn’t the biggest fan of Rosenblatt’s Human Remains, but I did quite enjoy this little film. Perhaps I’ll rewatch the other one, and dig a little deeper in this director’s films.
