Djeca / Children

This film is a story about three schools in Bosnia and Herzegovina which work with different curricula (Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian), and the actors are students, teachers and educational experts.

Film reveals how students respond to a question on the language which they speak, how do teachers speak about nationality of various writers and the differences between Croatian, Serbian and Bosnian language, and in particular, how are literary texts treated in class and how are they interpreted.

With the documentary approach and expert’s opinions, film de-masks models by which BH educational system works, focusing on the need for comprehensive educational reform.

This film is produced by Mediacentar Sarajevo, within the Initiative for Righteous Education in BH”, launched by Save the Children Norway, UNICEF and Open Society Fund in BH.
