Festival year: 2012
When a teacher asks the
children in her class what they want to be when they grow up, seven-year-old
Alex offers a surprising and worrying answer.
The profession Alex chooses isn’t actually a profession at all, and the boy doesn’t fully understand what the word means. The teacher tries to explain it to the children, drawing on experiences from her own painful past to help the children understand this highly sensitive ‘adult word’.
