    A School in Cerro Hueso / Una escuela en Cerro Hueso

    Argentina, 70', 2020

    age recommendation: 8+

    At the age of six, Ema has to start school – yet most schools are unwilling to accept a pupil diagnosed on the autism spectrum. The only ones prepared to teach her are the staff of a small rural school on the Paraná River. For Ema‘s family, this means leaving the city behind to start a new life in the country. Being close to nature, spending time with her classmate Irena and a mare called Estrellita, and also the unprejudiced approach of the local community help Ema take some small but important steps forward.
