Co-curated by Edward Lam, this screening series features seven international films on teachers, students and education. Looking at the role of schooling beyond transmission of knowledge, it presents a range of perspectives on how our minds and hearts are shaped during our formative years.

Some screenings are followed by a discussion session with Edward Lam and invited guests.
