Être et avoir
(2002)

Country: France

Genre: Documentary

IMDb

Synopsis

This film offers an in depth look at a small school in rural France where one remarkable man has been doing the job of a small teaching staff for 20 years. Georges Lopez is the teacher at the school in France's Auvergne region, where between December 2000 and June 2001 he taught 12 students between the ages of four and ten. Employing a curriculum that embraces both academics and practical skills, Lopez and his school represent a surprising mix of the old and the new, where computer technology and old-fashioned memorization of the multiplication tables sit side by side.

Dividing Bar

Lovely documentary, a very valuable look at a 21st-century one-room schoolhouse, despite a few scenes that were set up by the director, e.g. the one where the parents try to help the boy with his homework. Nicolas Philibert's earlier documentary In the Land of the Deaf, filmed partly in a school for deaf children, seems more honest, though it's surpassed by Lindsay Anderson's documentary short Thursday's Children, a look at young deaf children in a school where, this being 1954, oralism reigns.
