A critically acclaimed film about Ireland’s only boarding school for primary school children and just home from a whirlwind success at the Sundance Film Festival,
In Loco Parentis, goes behind the scenes of Headfort School in Kells, Co Meath, where tradition and modernity are embraced in a magical Hogwart’s like 18th century estate.
Following a year in the life of the school, this often times hilarious crowd-pleaser, focuses on teaching couple, John and Amanda Leyden, who have been shaping thousands of minds with their unorthodox teaching styles for almost half a century.
In Loco Parentis has been wowing audiences and critics at some of the world’s top documentary film festivals including IDFA (International Documentary Film Festival, Amsterdam) and Sundance. It is having its Irish premiere at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival this month.
‘Engaging’, ‘uplifting’, ‘delightful’, ‘compelling’, ‘magical’, ‘utterly charming’ are just some of the words being touted by critics.
