D 2016, Director: Sigrid Klausmann, 87 min., documentary film, in German, released 6, recommended 10

This documentary accompanies 8 to 12-year-olds on their way to school – a universal childhood ritual that takes different forms: on foot, by train, on skis, or on a donkey. On their way through the neighborhood – over mountains, through dangerous ghettos or desolate deserts – the children talk about themselves, their homeland, their families, their futures, about their worries and desires. The film reveals numerous individual, sometimes sobering lives and horizons of experience of a (self-) confidant generation, that remains full of ideals in the face of a merciless world. A multifaceted portrait of childhood, one that challenges us to approach what is foreign and reflect on what is our own. (MK)
