This short documentary sheds light on Principal Kevin McArevey’s unique teachings as he introduces philosophy as a core tenant of the curriculum at Holy Cross Boys’ Primary School in the heart of Ardoyne, North Belfast.
'Thinking About Thinking' is a Digital Arts Studios production, premiered at Belfast Film Festival in 2017.
The film was created through an outreach project facilitated by the Digital Arts Studios in partnership with the Duncairn Centre. The project set out to guide a group of first-time filmmakers of various age groups and backgrounds as they devise, research, plan, shoot and edit their first film. The filmmakers were Evan Short, Eimear Devlin, Csilla Borbely and Gabriela Alvarado Rios.
After the screening at Belfast Film Festival, there was an enlightening Q&A with the filmmakers, Principal Kevin McArevey and some of his Primary 11 students. For more information on the film contact the Digital Arts Studios.
DAS would like to acknowledge our principal funder, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, whose kind support made this project possible.
