In a forest camp, children who were excluded from school because of their peculiarities according to a special Swiss paragraph learn to trust their strengths again. The leader Alice gives them what they don’t know. Trust and recognition. But if it were not a game, there would not be moments in it that are beyond our control. And so the observation of reality leads us into the deepest fictional forests of fantasy. Water spirits and invisible trolls live there, children are abducted into math caves and maltreated with tasks. Now it is time to stick together!
Film project with children and young people from the Kerbholz forest school in Bern / Switzerland.
In collaboration with Thomas Knapp, the film “I don’t give up” based on the ideas and knowledge of the children.
