Back to School Films:
For the beginning of the new school year, we will be discussing films that explore the world of the school room - one a tender documentary and the other a depiction of youth in revolt. On this anniversary of 9/11, we will also be discussing a short that centers on a child's experience of the historic tragedy.
- I LIVE AT GROUND ZERO (2002)
This short explores the history of 9/11 through the eyes of a nine year old girl whose Tribeca childhood is shattered by the events of September 2001.
- IF (1968)
Starring a young Malcolm McDowell, director Lindsey Anderson's IF tells the story of an upper crust British boarding school where the relationship between the students and the authorities becomes increasingly contentious, leading to a standoff. The film won the Palme d'Or at the 1969 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for Best Direction at the 1969 BAFTA Awards.Click here to watch the trailer.
- TO BE AND TO HAVE (2002)
A depiction of a one room schoolhouse in rural France in which one teacher spends his days instructing children ranging from ages 4 to 11. Soon to retire, he has to address the needs of each of his students so that they may move onto the next grade or the next school and grow up to be kind, thoughtful people. The film won the 2003 César Award for Best Editing and the 2002 Prix Louis Delluc. Click here to watch the trailer.
