|Synopsis:||In a small, remote mountain top primary school in the Kenyan bush, hundreds of children are jostling for a chance for the free education newly promised by the Kenyan government. One new applicant causes astonishment when he knocks on the door of the school. He is Maruge, an old Mau Mau veteran in his eighties, who is desperate to learn to read at this late stage of his life. He fought for the liberation of his country and now feels he must have the chance of an education so long denied - even if he has to share a classroom with six-year-old children Opposed by parents and officials alike, Maruge finds a champion in head teacher Jane Obinchu (Naomie Harris) who, moved by his passionate pleas, joins in a fierce fight to ensure the old man gets his place in the classroom. From director Justin Chadwich The First Grader is a heartwarming story of one mans fight for what he believes is his right in overcoming the burdens of his past; and a triumphant testimony to the transforming power of education.|
