Push – Pull

Direction: Neven Hitrec, 61 mins, Croatia, 2020

A children's desk as a stage for a comical family drama. The learning process seems more like a modern version of the inquisition, full of yelling, shouting, open threats, velvety promises, bribery on the form of presents or video games, theatrics, memorable speeches, emotional reconciliations and impressively walking out of the stage. Each grade is a question of life or death. Who will be the first to give in, and who will snap – the loving parents or their selfish child? Who will be the first to curse the author of the curriculum? Who will learn by heart all of those unnecessary pieces of information? Who will learn to sing a song at midnight for the exam the next day and who will answer the question "What did the author want to express with this work?" These are all terrible questions, and a man is just a tiny piece of dust, fragile and weak. However, the essential part of human nature is not to give in. So let's move on, keep on keeping on, the future must be better. Let us fight for knowledge like a samurai or a kamikaze, for as long as we breathe.

The discussion on Monday will be attended by Romanian independent journalist Sorana Stanescu and Croatian director of the Center for Educational Research and Development Zrinka Ristić Dedić. The moderator will be Bob Kartous, Czech expert on the education advancement.
