Working title :
"Melina in Wonderschooland" (AKA From Fourfouras to Summerhill)
This documentary film is aiming to inform about established democratic schools in Europe and to raise awareness about democratic education, having in mind the special concerns of contemporary Greek society towards this subject. The country where democracy was born falls nowadays short of being proud about the 'democratic' methods used in its education system and the social governance in general. We will try to show this relationship of social and political consequences by exposing the educational domain. We will attempt to distribute the final doc to all related education media and dedicated doc film festivals.
A documentary with the main theme of alternative forms of education and democratic schools. An itinerary exploring the knowledge and learning outside state controlled education. Learning coincides with the discovery of sources of knowledge through travel, in order to experience freedom. We learn how to learn, along with the child and record and share our experience.
