Films Documentaries Room of Riddles
This documentary tells about the skills children need to learn in order to cope with the surrounding world. It follows the lives and learning process of six second-graders for a year. In school, they learn to read, count and sing as well as social skills and to interact with others. The school encourages them to express and discuss feelings.

The film's main characters, children, live between their own universe and the one beyond it. We see glimpses of their introverted worlds and the more interesting aspects of the outer one. Learning is a great joy.


The film has been shot in a class for autistic children in Espoo.
