All over France, there are still examples of what is known as “single-class schools” that bring together all the children of a village around one teacher, from kindergarten to the last year of primary school.

Between isolation and opening up in the world, these eclectic little groups share everyday life, for better and for worse.

This film was shot in one of them, somewhere in the heart of the Auvergne.

From the Filmmaker, Nicolas Philibert:

“In following the "characters" of this class, I wanted to share their ordeals, joys and minor tragedies. It is a very open film. For my part, I see a certain serious side to it,even a certain violence, although this remains contained. Before filming, I had forgotten just how hard it is not only to learn, but also to grow up. This plunge into the world of school gave me a powerful reminder of that. Perhaps that is the film's true subject.”
