In an explosive celebration of children’s creativity, ¡Primaria! follows the lives of several students and their teachers in a peculiar, yet somewhat recognisable, primary school. When José Maria—more apt at lecturing on Fine Arts at University than controlling a group of primary kids—fills in his new post as an art teacher, chaos seems absolutely inevitable. However, the journey on which his young and infinitely imaginative little students take him shows him there’s much he can learn from them! A life-embracing tale of discovery, and the reciprocal understanding between children and adults.
