On the Way to School
Northwest premiere!
Saturday, January 24, 7pm
(Pascal Plisson, France/China/South Africa/Brazil/Colombia, live action, 2014, 77 min)
Ages 9+. In French, Swahili, Maasai, and Spanish with English subtitles.

They live in all four corners of the planet and share a thirst for knowledge. Almost instinctively, they know that their survival depends on knowledge and education. From the dangerous savannahs of Kenya to the winding trails of the Atlas mountains in Morocco, from the suffocating heat of Southern India to the vast, dizzying plateaus of Patagonia, these children are all united by the same quest, the same dream: to go to school.

Jackson, Zahira, Samuel and Carlito are the heroes of On the Way to School, a documentary film that interweaves four pupils forced to confront and overcome countless, often dangerous obstacles enormous distances over treacherous territory, snakes, elephants, even banditson their journey to the classroom.

By setting foot on their extraordinary path, and embarking on an adventure littered with traps and challenges, they will begin to leave their childhoods behind.

Note for parents: This film is recommended for ages 9+ because of subtitles and a structure that suggests a more mature attention span. However, some younger children may also enjoy the film.
