Summary

CHEKHOV FOR CHILDREN tells the inspiring story of an ambitious undertaking: the 1979 staging on Broadway of "Uncle Vanya" by New York City 5th and 6th graders, directed by the celebrated writer Phillip Lopate. Using a wealth of never-before-screened student documentary videos and dramatic super 8mm films from the era, CHEKHOV FOR CHILDREN explores the interplay between art and life for a dozen friends across thirty years (including the filmmaker).
