Running time:152 min 41 sec
Description:In 1965-1966, the Urban Social Redevelopment Project prepared a research and action plan targeted at identifying and resolving issues faced by school children in poorer districts. The program was implemented at the Olier school in Montréal; it ensured that children would receive the assistance of a doctor, a nurse, a psychologist, social workers and teachers. Together, they strived to help these children and their families deal with serious problems: overpopulated housing, insufficient nourishment, chronic unemployment and low morale. The film captures real people going through the project’s training process and finding work. The experimental project featured in this film inspires reflection and serves as a useful working instrument for specialists dealing with educational, family and social issues.
