A Kind of Magic

A Kind of Magic

For John, rock music is just another school subject alongside Maths, Scripture and Latin! For his wife Amanda, the key to connecting with children is the book. For nearly half a century these two inspirational teachers have shaped thousands of minds at Headfort, the only primary-age boarding school in Ireland, housed in an 18th-century estate.  Presented at Sundance in 2017, this documentary follows a year in the teachers’ lives, observing their collaborative and often hilarious ways of capturing pupils’ imaginations, as well as their contemplation of the hardest lesson to come – retirement.
