With Claire Simon in person

Dir. Claire Simon. France. 1998, 54 mins. In French with English subtitles. In a schoolyard in France, kindergartners explode into recess. Their free time takes on epic dimensions, with dramas of violence, love, jealousy, betrayal, and resentment unfolding in every corner. Filming in her daughter’s schoolyard, Claire Simon’s eye-opening Récréations shows the origins of human society metastasizing in the laboratory of children at play.
