These Children on my Way

Documentary, 48′, 2015

Director : Erika Haglund


Elana, Mathis, Camille and Ulysse are part of a specialized classroom in an elementary school. They are between 7 and 12 years old and have various intellectual difficulties. For them, each learning process is a struggle, sometimes painful, between self and others, between self and self.

But outside of the classroom, sometimes their childlike bodies let themselves go. On a circus trapeze or relaxed on the rump of a horse, they abandon themselves.
