The School by the Sea

Solveig Melkeraaen

The small school of 6-year-olds Thorvin and Tilde, located by the sea, closes, and now they have to go to a bigger school in the nearest town. Tilde gets a stomach ache thinking about the closure and Thorvin wonders what will happen to the toy kitchen.

The director Solveig Melkeraaen of the award-winning documentary “Tongue Cutters (Filem’On 2018) this time presents a fascinating picture of centralization, seen through the eyes of small children.
