Cinema Releases - School of Babel

School of Babel
On DVD and VOD now

They are Irish, Senegalese, Brazilian, Moroccan, Chinese… They are between eleven and fifteen years old and have just arrived in France. For a year they will be all together in the same ‘reception class’ of a Parisian secondary school, under the supervision of their teacher Brigitte Cervoni, the driving force behind the film. Twenty-four students, twenty-four nationalities… In this multicultural arena, we see the innocence, the enthusiasm and inner turmoil of these teenagers who, caught in the midst of starting out on a new life, learning a new language and adapting to a different culture, question our preconceived ideas and give us hope for a better world and a better future...
