Sylvia by Prod Co: Unitel International Ltd( Visual )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a dramatisation based on two autobiographical novels by Sylvia Ashton-Warner who developed a liberated approach to teaching young, illiterate, mainly Maori pupils. In doing so she comes up against the male educational bureaucracy and an educational system based on teaching methods which she rejects as 'cultural imperialism'. Nine years in the novels, spent in several New Zealand locations, are compressed into a few months in a small, country town in the early 1940s. This is both a classroom drama and an emotional story about a young woman and her relationships during a time when she is attempting to come to terms with an overwhelming sense of isolation in a society that largely rejects the artist. Also available on VHS
