9 Year Old Suggests A New Way Of Schooling… And It’s Beautiful.
We Live Of Love is a 1984 documentary by Silvano Agosti on the themes of tenderness, sensuality and love. In this excerpt, we meet Franck, an incredibly articulate and wise nine year old boy from Naples, who discusses his ideas on the meaning of life and play in contrast with his experience of school.
“Art is older than production for use, and play older than work. Man was shaped less by what he had to do than by what he did in playful moments. It is the child in man that is the source of his uniqueness and creativeness, and the playground is the optimal milieu for the unfolding of his capacities.” – Eric Hoffer
