Kindergarten Interrupted

Created by Chantal Gibson

Produced by Rob McLaughlin

Chantal Gibson is taking over a classroom, but on a day 60 years in the past. This classroom only exists in memory, preserved by the 1962 NFB production — Kindergarten. The film flickers with nostalgia, and it’s precisely that warm feeling that Chantal wishes to confront. In her bid to make a decolonising media work, she intends to overwrite the pixels and cellulose of this classic film in an effort to center a vital conversation firmly present.
