Video Wednesday: SummerHill

Lately I’ve been watching a lot of videos, some I have come across myself on Youtube, others I have found thanks to friends on Facebook. But no matter the mode of finding them, I’ve been wanting to share them forward; recommend them to others to watch.

With this thought in mind I figured I’d start Video Wednesday – a way for me to share one video that I’ve immensely enjoyed every week. It could be a movie video, a song, spoken word, DIY tutorial, funny video,… oh well you get the gist, it could be anything but in video format. 😀 Hope you enjoy the videos I find and share here. :)

I came across the SummerHill video on a sustainability group I am a part of. The recommend said it was an “excellent and beautiful film on freedom of children and their education” and that got me interested.

I thought I would watch the first couple of minutes and decide whether to watch the rest, especially after I saw it was 1 hour and 48 minutes long! The first few minutes had me wanting to watch more and so I shelved the movie to watch along with dinner. And oh boy was that a long dinner! 😀

I enjoyed the movie which is the “story of a school of freedom which allows students to pursue their own interests, talents and passions”.  Some bits of it are in your face fake and over dramatized but yet the message is clear and strong. I would so want to be a part of school like SummerHill.

Based on a true story this is a four part television production that has been put together as one. SummerHill does exist in Suffolk, UK and so does it’s founder A. S. Neill’s principle – “Freedom, not Licence.” You can read more about SummerHill on it’s Wikipedia page and check out A.S Neill’s Summerhill School website.

Ok enough of the gyan, now over to the video. Hope you enjoy it. :)
