Event description
The first ever documentary film on Montessori education - as lived by the children themselves.

About this Event

Director Alexandre Mourot spends a year filming a class in which students direct their own learning.

As a young father, watching his daughter go through her life experiences, Mourot discovered the Montessori approach and decided to set his camera up in a children's house for children three to six years of age, in the oldest Montessori school in France. He was warmly welcomed in a surprisingly calm and peaceful environment, filled with flowers, fruits and special learning materials. He met happy children, who were free to move about, working alone or in small groups. The teacher remained very discreet. Some children were reading, others were making bread, doing division, laughing or sleeping.

The children guided the film director throughout the whole school year, helping him to understand the magic of their autonomy and self-esteem – the seeds of a new society of peace and freedom, which Maria Montessori dedicated her life’s work to develop.
