SCHOOL LIFE

Grand Corps Malade, Mehdi Idir | France | 2019 | 116 min
O.V in French subtitled in English and Spanish

We have to get to know how to look beyond the obvious. When Samia is assigned to teach at a "problematic students" high school, (dysfunctional families, delinquency and lack of opportunities on the horizon), she immediately sees the potential of the troubled Yanis. The greatest mind hides behind the insolence of the most recalcitrant personality. A film that speaks without euphemisms about the restrictions of the educational system and the actual connection between teachers and students without losing sight of hope even in a harsh environment. A film based on the directors own experience, Mehdi Idir and Grand Corps Malade, star of the Poetry Slam in France.
