WHY SEACHING FOR SUPERMAN?

Traveling Europe to connect people who are transforming education

About

the project

Searching for Superman is a documentary film project about inspiring & innovative educational projects and schools. 

For more than two years we will travel across Europe searching for people (teachers, school leaders, social entrepreneurs, young people themselves…) who are changing the world through education. In 2021 we will produce the film with the best insights..

Our goals are to share their stories and testimonials and to connect them to generate a  movement of global change.
