Can Descriptions
'An initial look at Orff-Schulwerk in America; filmed at seventeen schools in seven states. A cinematic and candid study, documenting students at various stages of the learning experience in activities not specifically structured for the camera. Recommended for audiences of all ages with a general interest in music, movement, dance, theater, and the creative learning process.' The 17 participating schools are: Henry W. Hall School, Falmouth MA; Morse Pond School, Falmouth MA; Latimer Lane School, Simsbury CT; Jepson School, New Haven CT; Lomond School, Shaker Heights OH Rozelle School, East Cleveland OH Cranbrook Schools/Brookside, Bloomfield Hills MI Midvale & Pembroke Schools, Birmingham MI Highland School, Skokie IL St. Paul of the Cross School, Park Ridge IL Memphis State University, Memphis TN; Memphis State University Campus School, Memphis TN; Berclair School, Memphis TN; Hillside School, Hastings-on-Hudson NY Upper Nyack Elementary School, Nyack NY Hartwick College, Oneonta NY Center Street Elementary School, Oneonta NY. Orff-Schlwerk is a non-traditional approach to education; founded by Carl orff, it employs music as means to unlocking the creative forces in each individual. NHF viewing notes: Children and teachers play various instruments while flowers dissolve in and out. Poem quotations fade in and out. Minimalist style music throughout. Other scenes: children dancing (freestyle and choreographed), drawing. Film veers suddenly into classical music with scenes of traveling through United States. Then back to children.
