OKI DOKI Documentary Academy. Children’s workshop after the screening of “The Schoolgarden” within the “Lessons from nature” block
For children aged 9 and up, as well as their adult companions.
Duration: 90 mins.
There are things you just can’t learn while sitting at your school desk. For instance, how do you grow cucumbers, tomatoes, how does the weather affect everything, what lives in the soil and how do you make compost? You need to visit a real garden to gain that kind of knowledge. OR, go to the DOCS AGAINST GRAVITY festival and see a great family movie called “szkolny ogródek”. It’s a tale of school kids in Amsterdam who start sowing seeds, all by themselves, and who later take care of their crop by keeping it safe from pests, and finally observe wildlife visiting their common garden. And it’s so much fun! Let’s copy them!
Documentary screenings for the youngest viewers are their window to the word – they cause awe, are sometimes moving and disturbing. The OKI DOKI Documentary Academy offers ways of dealing with such reactions and making the film a lesson of empathy, tolerance and wider knowledge.
