A touching film about hidden potential, creativity, integration, the power of music and the possible future of our society. It shows new ways of inspiring adolescent creativity and is a push for a new education policy. The film won the Audience Award at Diagonale in Graz and the Jury Award in Sarajevo.
Kinders shows a musical world that is more open and richer than the world the children came from, a world where they learn to trust themselves. It gives them access to a day-to-day life in which they are heard and seen and their needs are respected. Through a music project, we learn from Arash and Arman T. Riahi what really goes on in our children's lives - their worries, joys and desires. A mature film about children - empathetic, merciless, and inspiring.
