Film Series: The Kindergarten Teacher (2014)
20th November - 7:00pm for 7:15pm
A poetry-loving kindergarten teacher discovers a child poet and decides to nurture him, to salvage him from the banal, the mediocre and the crude. This is the story of a female Don Quixote, who strives to save the world through the poetry of a child, and of a pensive child who has no desire to be saved.
One of the most fascinating, if inscrutable films of the year.
FOUR STARS - The Guardian Newspaper
"...self-assured, remarkably powerful.
