Litmus Films: Learning for Real

Friday 28th June

Doors at 7pm // Film from 7:30pm

What do Writhlington School’s Orchid Club, an outdoor kindergarten in Arctic Norway and the Budapest Children’s Railway have in common?   As these three remarkable short documentaries reveal, they all give children responsibility for real world tasks.    Whether they’re 13-year-olds conserving endangered plants, 4-year-olds lighting fires, or 10-year-olds operating train signals, these films show that wrapping children in cotton wool may not be the best preparation for adulthood.

A fascinating and stimulating evening for any interested in the educational benefits of teaching children how to manage risk rather than avoid it.   Includes Q&A with the films’ director, Robert Stern of Litmus Films.
