To Be And To Have

A film by Nicolas Philibert
World premiere date: Sélection officielle - Festival de Cannes 2002
French release date: August 28, 2002

All over France, there are still examples of what are known as “single-class schools”: classes that bring together all the children of a village around one teacher, from kindergarten to the last year of primary school.
Between isolation and opening up to the world, these eclectic little groups share everyday life, for better and for worse.
This film was shot in one of them, somewhere in the heart of the Auvergne.

With la classe d'une école communale à Saint-Etienne sur Usson
