Tableau Noir

Director : Yves Yersin
Production year : 2013

BLACKBOARD plunges spectators into an intimate and inaccessible microcosm of an elementary school located in a hamlet where there are only five houses at 1153 meters in the Jura region. The feature film chronicles life at the school over a year, focusing on the pupils, aged six to twelve, who share the same class, along with their successes and failures - a dramatic story with universal appeal.
