Czech film in Alliance Francaise

On March 16, 2011 a Czech film entitled Behind the High School Walls was presented in Alliance Française de Manille as part of the annual celebrations of Francophonie 2011.

The film, released in 2010 and directed by Tomáš Vorel, explores the hidden conflicts affecting the younger generation: conflicts between conformity and absolute freedom, between responsibility and living impulsively, between a school experience divorced from reality and the need to seek real experiences.  Set within the high school lives of students Petr and Michal, their teacher Tomáš, and school director Mirka, the film will take you from a traditional school environment into the dark, nighttime lives of graffiti artists. Unbridled freedom, ignorance of all rules, and hip hop, round out this dramatic, thrilling story.
