Screening: The Children's Republic


Saturday, April 2, 2022, 3:00pm to 4:20pm


Harvard Film Archive, 24 Quincy St., Cambridge

In a post-war civilization run by children, director Flora Gomes explores concepts of symbolism and magical realism to tell the tale of a utopian society and its young inhabitants. The Children’s Republic sheds light on an era of national liberation and harmony, where only children—aside from Dubem the advisor, played by Danny Glover—are left to seek peace and redemption from the death and destruction of their nation's lingering past.

Cost: $10 for general public; $8 for non-Harvard students & seniors; free for Harvard ID holders
