Please watch the film below.

The above film was shot in a special school. The students have used glove puppets to talk about life and its ups and downs. The film won a prestigious competition.

Watch the video and discuss it with your classmates.

  • Why do you think the judges of the film competition liked this film?
  • What does it have to say about disabled youngsters?
  • Did any of the comments surprise or upset you? Make you laugh? Disturb you? Inform you?


The producer of this video has been approached by a local university. The university has asked permission to use this short film in DVD format to help train teachers about students with special needs.

The producer has agreed to this request but has suggested that the film should have a few short notes to go with it.

These notes will be printed on the side of the DVD case. Owing to lack of space, there is a limit of 50 words.

What information do you think should be included with this DVD?
