The Friends of Jametown Library International Film Series: Sur le chemin de l'école

What if the ways that lead to school was brought to the screen ? It was an ambitious yet successful gamble. “On the Way to School” directed by Pascal Plisson and produced by Barthélemey Fougea illustrates the incredible and true stories of four children, true heros. Zahira in Morocco, Jackson in Kenya, Carlos in Argentina, and Samuel in India each experience countless challenges everyday, sometimes at the risk of their lives, to get to school.
