Synopsis

The twenty children of the B section are all different in aptitude, history and background, yet together they form a cohesive group.

The Circle is a documentary that recounts their growth from the first to the fifth grade: in the classroom of their school, thanks to the practice of “circle time,” a time in which, sitting in a circle on the floor, children, teacher and director with the camera talk and confront each other with a regular cadence along the five years of elementary school, a privileged listening space is created in which the children repose their universe, share thoughts, emotions and confront their vision of the world around them.

The circle thus becomes a portrait of childhood in which today’s Italy, which for them is already yesterday’s.
