SCHOOL ON THE MOVE

Fatima, Hassen, Delsher, Deliar, Sahad, Mohamad Nour, Yusef, Roshin, Riham, Lin... These are the names that give a face, look and desire to the almost 50 million children who have been forced to cross borders, according to UNICEF figures. On top of all their suffering, these children in transit lose the Right to Education: they can hardly write, they have no access to reading material, and they have lost the basic school habits and routines. This documentary offers an artistic activity to Syrian children at the Cherso refugee camp (in the north of Thessaloniki, Greece): the creation of an animated short film through which to express their worries and their wishes in relation to the school they don’t have and that they would like to have.
