Sofia | Attachment (secure/insecure), Awareness of Camera, Expression, Pleasure, Presence/absence, Separation, Sibling Rivalry
Continuing from Clip 02: Sofia is on the carpet with a toy. She is rubbing her eyes and looking closely at the toy. Mom’s voice enters the room, greeting Nomsa and the filmmaker and then calling to Sofia, who has not yet responded to her voice. As Sofia hears mom calling her she drops the toy, rolls towards mom and drags herself a few arm-reaches closer, smiling broadly. Sofia’s hands are stretched up towards mom who picks her up and kisses her several times. Mom comments on how nice Sofia smells, tells her she has brought her lots of food and then tells Nomsa she is going downstairs to prepare supper. She leaves with Sofia in her arms. Sofia is touching mom’s necklace. Mom goes into the kitchen and chats with the boys about pizza for supper, while carrying Sofia on her hip. Mom gives Sofia a carrot and places her, sitting firmly herself, on the carpet. The boys play around Sofia who explores both ends of the carrot in her mouth. The boys chat to the filmmaker who responds, particularly to Luca’s direct engagement with her. Sofia watches the boys passing back and forth in front of her.
