PRIDE OF PLACE

UK, 1976 (MIFF 1977)

Director: Dorothea Gazidis

This documentary presents life in a minor public school in Britain. It was made by a student of the National Film School, who refrained from commenting on anything shown on the screen, but by allowing the teachers, students and parents to speak for themselves, created a telling social satire.
