Guillen Project

(Proyecto Guillén)
David Lorenzo | Documentary

2019 | 29 minutes | Spain

A dedicated schoolteacher faces a daunting challenge: one of his elementary school students, Guillén, is diagnosed with cancer.

Synopsis

Guillén Project unfolds against the backdrop of Monzón, Huesca, where dedicated schoolteacher Javi faces a daunting challenge: one of his elementary school students, Guillén, is diagnosed with cancer. A typical teacher-student relationship transforms into a profound journey of determination when Guillén's illness forces him out of the classroom. Javi initiates "The Guillén Project," an educational endeavor designed to ensure Guillén remains connected with his classmates through special videos, predating the widespread use of platforms like Zoom.

Recognized by The Ministry of Education and Vocational Training, "The Guillén Project" earns Javi the prestigious Francisco Giner de los Ríos Award for its impact on education. The documentary delves into the challenges of unconventional educational methods and celebrates solidarity in times of adversity. The film is a testament to the enduring spirit of hope and the unwavering commitment to ensuring equitable access to education.
