This is Nina, one of the fourth graders at John F. Kennedy School in Berlin. We interviewed the class two weeks after they watched the 2011 Berlinale film THE STRONGEST MAN IN
HOLLAND. Nina's detailed response not only revealed a vivid memory of the film but her own unique way of thinking about it. I asked the children next what they wanted to be when they grew up. Nina's response is an apt one. I'm glad she and more got a chance to hear her state it. Nina later found Gintare Malinauskaita and I debriefing at a sidewalk cafe near the school (she had been on the bus and jumped off when she saw us). She was excited and smiling ear to ear. She had to tell us how much she enjoyed our interview and she wanted to tell us how much she loves writing. The moment you see here in this clip may have been the first time Nina heard herself profess her dream. I hope that Nina continues to watch challenging films that further foster her dream.
