The Forbidden Education (2012)

4.8 ·

The school has been around for more than 200 years and is still considered the main form of access to education. Today, the school and education are concepts widely discussed in academia, public policy, educational institutions, media and civil society spaces. Since its inception, the school has been characterized by structures and practices that are now considered largely obsolete and outdated. We say no accompanying XXI century needs. Its main shortcoming is in a design that does not consider the nature of learning, freedom of choice and the importance of love and human links in the individual and collective development.

Part 1 is Spanish with English subtitles. Part 2 is Spanish without subtitles.

From these reflections reviews have emerged, along the years, proposals and practical education thought and think differently. "The Forbidden Education" is a documentary film that seeks to recover many of them, explore their ideas and visualize those experiences that have dared to change the structure of the educational model of the traditional school.

More than 90 interviews with educators, scholars, professionals, authors, mothers and fathers, a tour of eight Latin American countries through 45 educational and unconventional experiences. The film gained more than 25,000 followers on the social networks before its release and a total of 704 co-producers participating in collective financing converted "The Forbidden Education" into a unique phenomenon. A completely independent project of unprecedented magnitude, which accounts for the latent need of growth and emergence of new forms of education.

Films For Action is a community-powered, digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Although we started out hosting community film screenings in the beginning and did so for many years, our digital library eventually became our primary focus. 

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated 4,000 articles.

“Independent media is dangerous because it allows people to speak for themselves. And when you hear someone speaking from their own experience - whether it's a Palestinian child or an Israeli grandmother or an uncle in Afghanistan or a refugee in the Calais refugee camp - it changes you. It breaks the sound barrier. It challenges the stereotypes and the caricatures that fuel the hate groups. You may not agree with what you hear - I mean, how often do we even agree with our family members? - but you begin to understand where they're coming from. That understanding is the beginning of peace. I really do think that the media can be the greatest force for peace on Earth. Instead, all too often, it is wielded as a weapon of war. We have to take the media back.” - Amy Goodman, Place to B at COP21
