'Playground is a sit-up-and-take-notice blend of outstandingly natural performances enhanced by spot-on cinematic choices.' - Lisa Nesselson, Screen International

Do you remember your first moments at primary school? In ​​Laura Wandel’s striking debut film, we’re with 7-year-old Nora right through her own jolting first adjustments to a particularly unsupervised playground. The film’s original title, Un monde, is the best indicator of what to expect: camera at a low eye height, a whirling panoply of sounds, injustice seemingly in every corner. Nora’s all-seeing protector Dad has left her at the gate, and in place of adult rules, there’s new alliances with friends, however temporary. A wild, immersive ride and a clear parable of moral law.
