Klassen

2020 – 50 minutes.

Sarah Sylbing and Ester Gould follow primary school students just before their level for high school is decided. Some of them are in a difficult home-situation, while others feel pressure to achieve. Luckily their teachers, principal and the alderman are closely involved. But the question remains whether
that is enough..

For the documentary series ‘Klassen’, HUMAN, IDFA and MoviesThat Matter developped lesson material under the name of ‘Klassen in de Klas’, meant for high school (VO) and MBO. Through fragments, viewer questions and in-depth assignments, teachers and students are inspired to start a conversation about inequality of opportunity, pressure to achieve and visual language. The online lesson material is in Dutch.
