B Is for Book 2016
Description: Documentary following a group of basic schoolchildren over the course of a year as they learn to read. Some of them create a flying start, but others struggle even with the alphabet. The movie takes us into their home lives, where we search that some parents are strongly aspirational, tutoring kids late into the night, while others speak English as a foreign language, if at all. As the kids master the basics, they explore the magical globe of stories and look with new eyes at the globe around them. The movie gives us privileged access to a profound process that all of us only ever do once in our lives.
