What is a student’s association? What does it do? How do they address the issue of improving a school? These are just a few of the concerns students have in the 5th School of Paraná, the institution Celina Murga chose to investigate for an entire year in her first documentary work. There are many locations and situations: teacher’s meetings where they analyze how to organize a lesson, students debating about their ability to represent themselves, recesses, school yards, the principal’s office, the end of the school day, and of course, the classroom –where young teens even dare to challenge the constitution’s preamble. Among water balloon wars and diverse pranks, these young kids experience the comings and goings of their very first political participation as they decide their future, what will they do when school is over, and how they will face adult life.
