The First Day of School

The Romanian cultural weekly Dilema Veche asked us to tell the story of the first day of school, as we experienced it while filming Our School. We are grateful for the opportunity, though telling — and, to a certain extent, re-living — the experience was not without pain and regret. You can find the Romanian-language article here.
