“Ways to School” — the French series based on the film version that won Best Documentary at César Awards in 2014, will make it’s U.S. debut tonight on CINÉMOI.
The series follows children around the world on their way to school, which is not as simple as getting dropped off by a bus or carpool. Some traverse dangerous terrain and conditions in pursuit of an education.
A description of the series reads:
For all of them, at the end of their journey, there’s school. The conquest of a better life by education; an ideal embodied by the way the children take to reach their school throughout the planet. They have in common a thirst for learning. Instinctively, they know their future depends on knowledge, then on school. From every corner of the world, each one imagines their classrooms. These kids have for horizon the blackboard. But to reach the benches of their faraway school, they must brave thousands of difficulties on their way. Their roads to knowledge, hanged out in majestic landscapes, are as perilous as exhilarating.
