Childhood unplugged

On memories and movies

It is a mystery the way your memory works, and it will stay a mystery for a while.

Over time we get an overflow of pictures and movies, so a personal movie of almost five decades ago is a real thing to treasure.

Over a year ago we needed to empty our parents’ house. A moment where memories resurrect. I got hold of our childhood movies that were taken by my father on 4mm film. Since there are four of us, we wanted to digitize them, and I asked for quotes from different companies. There is a big difference in price, depending on to what level you want them “corrected: or “‘cleaned up.”  I found a company that put the films on four hard copies. It worked out well.

Looking at these movies, memories–but also questions–arise. It was a different era:  All the adults smoking at all the parties. Education had different limits, and children had more freedom to explore for themselves. I enjoyed watching the old-fashioned hairstyle and interior design.

You can see a little glimpse behind the scenes in the movie underneath. Nowadays I prefer wine to beer. Maybe the aversion to beer was created at one and a half years old?

I am still as creative and persistent though, when I really want something 🙂

Enjoy and till next week,

    Zalig! We hebben het verscheidene keren afgespeeld, zo schattig! Ook voor de muziek🌈, en om te ontdekken of de eerste indruk echt was dat je als kleine pook gezwind het flesje opent met 1 ruk. Over 1 ding zijn we zeker…je kinderen hebben moeders trekken👼🏻. Dank dat we mee mochten kijken, knap gedaan!

      Grappig dat je de trekken van de kinderen herkent. En fijn dat je ervan genoten hebt!

    Leuke film. Hij zat nog vers in mijn geheugen.
    The morning after. Met alle restjes waar de baby zich mee kan amuseren.
    Of was het een parodie op het gedrag van de volwassenen?
    Nee, zo ver moeten we het niet gaan zoeken!

      Ja, het geheugen… En het gedrag: dat zullen we nooit weten! groetjes, Sophie
