In 2010, a group of twenty Honors students enrolled in a leadership learning course at the IIS Honours Program of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the Free University of Amsterdam(VU). The students had very diverse backgrounds, from the Singaporean army to anthropology and physics, they applied to explore themselves and their world.
Thieu Besselink designed the course as a laboratory for pioneering. With a series of inspiring encounters, an open learning environment and a bucket-load of creative chaos, the students embarked on an unlikely inner and outer journey.
This documentary, directed by Victor van Doorn and Jochem Smit shows the student’s progression from talented scholars, to driven social entrepreneurs and ultimately, directors of their own education.
