Documentary Film: 6 Weeks to Mother's Day

6 Weeks to Mother’s Day paints an intimate portrait of Thai culture by exploring one of its most progressive schools, Moo Baan Dek (Children’s Village). Home to some of Thailand’s most underprivileged children, Children's Village has become a pillar in the Thai education system and a promising symbol of the country’s future.   Located in a remote jungle village in Kanchanaburi province, children sleep twelve to a room, have no hot water, limited electricity, and work together in the village garden to help provide themselves with food. It is a simple way of life where nature is used to encourage both healing and education.

The school follows A.S Neill’s democratic education system known as Summerhill.  In a Summerhill setting, students of all ages are given a strong voice, study what they choose, and participate equally with teachers in school votes.  6 Weeks to Mother’s Day follows the students as they prepare a special celebration to honor the school’s founder and person they refer to as mother, Rajani Dhongchai, on what will be her 35th Mother’s Day at the school. Along the way, prepare to witness Thailand’s oldest democratic school in action and rare slice of Thai culture as seen through the eyes of some of its most forward thinking children.

The film is Directed by Marvin Blunte and released in 2018.  Running time is 93 min.  The film is in Thai with English subtitles.

Registration is required to receive the link to view the film online.  Once the Library emails you the link, you will have approx 72 hours to view the film.  Registration is limited to 100.
