Director’s Statement ‘An old person is like treasure to a family.’ Kid was inspired by two elderly people in my family. While spending time with them, I discovered that they were in many ways like children: stubborn, distracted, and often strangely juvenile. As a grown-up, I both loved and hated them. As they lost their independence and got themselves into trouble, I realised that the people who had once watched over me were slowly growing old - or, rather, slowly moving back towards their most infantile states.
