Les Accrocheurs

Documentary
French

The students at O.V.N.I. (Ouverture vers notre indépendance – the door to our independence), an alternative school in Chicoutimi, are total drop-ins. They’ve all lived through some really tough times and have repeatedly failed in school. The only thing keeping them from dropping out again is Gary Tardif, their very dedicated confidante, mentor and teacher. The series focuses on the Formation générale des adultes (adult general education) network, the first line of defence in helping children stay in school. Set to music by Dany Placard, Les Accrocheurs presents a communicative approach to teaching that shows what really motivates children to stay in school.

Cast/Participants: Dany Placard, Vincent Audet-Nadeau, Gary Tardif
