05/27 | ON THE WAY TO SCHOOL (Kenya, Morocco, Patagonia, and Bengal) (Film)


Just getting to school creates harrowing adventure and demands heroic stamina of four children living in Kenya, Morocco, Patagonia, and Bengal. Lush photography in breathtaking locales stands in incongruous contrast to the dangers involved in each child’s daily journey, documented over many miles of treacherous terrain, dodging stampeding elephants in Kenya, or on foot through high mountain passes in Morocco. Director Plisson eschews moralizing, allowing the children’s unflagging desire for education to speak for itself. In French with English subtitles. DCP digital. (BS)
