Copy of Being and Becoming, a film by Clara Bellar
Sat, April 8, 2017, 2:00 PM – 4:30 PM CDT
Being and Becoming explores the theme of trusting children and their development, and invites us to question our learning paradigms and options.
The filmmaker takes us on a journey of discovery through the US, France, the UK and Germany (where it's illegal not to go to school.) We meet parents who have made the choice of not schooling their children, neither at school nor at home, but of letting them learn freely what they are truly passionate about.
It is a quest for truth about the innate desire to learn. It belongs to a wider theme than education, connected to a change in our belief system and to our society's evolution, as well as to the importance of reclaiming one's life and self-confidence.
