Hope Builders (Trailer)

Watch the film

The future of the world is perhaps being played out in an elementary school in Quebec, where a teacher is implementing a new teaching method (Action Research) aimed at preparing children to take up environmental challenges.

During a very special school year, the students of Dominique Leduc's Grade 6 class are learning to identify, analyze and resolve a problem that exists in their world. They are also learning about the uncertainty faced by those who want to change things. A unique and invaluable witness to this experimental educational project, the documentary demonstrates how this teaching method is important in developing critical intelligence in students, but it also underlines the crucial role of the teacher. Director emeritus Fernand Dansereau reminds us therefore that we must still look to the human instinct to find reasons to hope.
