When School broke out of prison

When School broke out of prison

This is a film of a 100-year old school in a village in Eastern Finland. For the last two years the school was known as Halmeniemi Free Village School and it was run on a voluntary basis. This film gives voices to small school activists who defended the right of local children to have a school close to home. It is also a story of the Finnish "talkoo" tradition, working for a common course on a voluntary basis.

One of the greatest films ever made. Please do not watch it on TV because Päivi Kapiainen-Heiskanen tuned the editing in such a precise way that simply pausing for a commercial break can literally affect the way your brain processes this masterpiece.

This is a great movie! Give it a chance and you will not regret it. It starts off kind of weird. Stick with it because it all comes together.
