Young Plato

IR 2022, 1h30

Irish spoken, Dutch subtitles

The documentary is set in Ardoyne, a post-conflict area of Belfast, where a marginalised working-class community has been affected by poverty, drugs and violence for generations. This film outlines the dream of headmaster Kevin McArevey and his dedicated, visionary team. It shows how critical thinking and personal care, enables and encourages children to see beyond the boundaries and limitations of their own community. The film shows how philosophy encourages them to question the myths of war and violence, and to sometimes question the narratives imposed on them by their parents, peers and community.
