The Robert Bosch Academy is proud to present the documentary:
Miss Kiet’s Children
by Petra Lataster-Czisch, Peter Lataster
Netherlands, 2016, 113 min

"Miss Kiet’s Children" is a moving glimpse into a Dutch provincial classroom where several of the young children have only just arrived in Holland, many are refugees from Mideast countries. Everything is new and confusing yet the loving, but firm, hand of their teacher Kiet Engels, brings calm and awakens interest. Focusing on the young children the result is moving, often funny, sometimes sad but by the end of the school year, the class has become a safe and close-knit community.
