The School Blown Away by the Wind
Filmfest 2006

The school for nomad children seen in GABBEH is the subject of this heartwarming short that includes a humanist twist... It begins as an old man enters the improvised classroom. The teacher thinks his visitor might be an inspector from the Training & Education Ministry so he allows him to question the children about their education. It turns out that the visitor is actually a former teacher who has stopped by to refresh his memories of a happy time in his life.
