Peter Gordon, a former BBC editor who became fascinated with the little school founded by educator Stephen Haff, has spent more than 100 hours filming Haff and his students, who meet four days a week after school to read classic literature and study Latin.
But to edit his footage into a cohesive film that does justice to the school, Gordon and his producer and his team, producer Ann Lalic and editor William Ennals, need about $35,000.
“This film asks the question: ‘What do we want from our schools and children, from teachers? What is education for?’ For Stephen it is straightforward: ‘This is the vision right here, the village is raising the child,'” the team explains.
