Who are today’s children? What do they think and what do they manage to grasp of the adult world? To answer these questions, the director Sophie Chiarello decides to follow the pupils of a primary class in a school immersed in a multi-ethnic neighbourhood. For five years with her camera, she lowers her gaze to child height to capture their point of view of the world. The Circle is not a documentary about children, but with children. Disarming and genuine as only they know how to be.
