To be and to have

Long Métrage Documentaire / Nicolas Philibert / Maïa Films / 2001

There are still, almost everywhere in France, single-classroom schools that bring together, under the same schoolteacher, all the children from the same village, from nursery age to their last year of primary education. Whether their individual members are withdrawn or outgoing, these assorted little groups share everyday life, for the best and for the worst. It was in one of these schools, somewhere in the heart of the Auvergne, that my film was shot.
