Film synopsis
In Lessons for the New School (La Nova Escola) prestigious director and producer Ventura Durall follows the education reform “Escola Nova 21” program which has generated an educational revolution in Catalonia, during the three years of its existence. Can an education system be successfully changed from the bottom up? Only time will tell, but the seed for rethinking the education of the citizens of the future has come to stay. And it is unstoppable.

"Ventura Durall illustrates the adventurous educational movement that aspires to change teaching for children and youngsters facing the future to avoid repeating past failures." (Cineuropa).
