A New View Film Series: Young Plato

February 6, 2025 @ 7:00pm

Young Plato charts the dream of Elvis-loving school headmaster Kevin McArevey—a maverick who is determined to change the fortunes of an inner-city community plagued by urban decay, sectarian aggression, poverty and drugs. The all-boys primary school in post-conflict Belfast, Northern Ireland, becomes a hot house for thinking and questioning, as the headmaster encourages the children to see beyond the boundaries and limitations of their community, sending his young wards home each day armed with the wisdom of the ancient Greek philosophers. The boys challenge their school-friends, parents and neighbors to find alternatives to violence and prejudice, and to challenge the mythologies of war, modeling peace and reconciliation building strategies.

This performance is free and open to the public, no ticket is required.
