INTO FILM FESTIVAL - H is for Harry
H is for Harry is a timely documentary which primarily follows the young students of Reach Academy, in the London borough of Hounslow, as they navigate their tumultuous first two years of high school. The films focus and title character, Harry, is a confident and charming boy of 11 who arrives at the school unable to read or write and the film gently parses out the systematic reasons for his academic struggles, including his relationship with his father who is also illiterate. His journey, along with the sustained efforts of the incredibly dedicated teachers at the school, highlight the ever-increasing gulf between the 4.1 million children living in poverty and an education system that is not suited to their needs.
