We are grateful for our experience at the American Montessori Society’s Annual Conference in late March 2017 in San Diego. Co-Director/Co-Producer Jan Selby showed a short video about Lumin Education for the first time at our workshop “Sneak Previews of Montessori Works in Progress.” More than 100 attendees enjoyed these videos and the Q&A session. We thank Lumin Education for welcoming us into their amazing world. Jan also shared our “Directors’ Vision” video and our “Highlights video.” Each video includes clips from the more than 300 hours of footage shot for the film!

It was also an honor to share the workshop with Emmy award winning composer, Matty Selman, who shared a video about his beautiful original musical that will bring to life the work of Maria Montessori, “La Dottoressa.” 


Headed to the Finish Line 

We are working toward completing the film in 2017 with our sights on having a rough cut by the International Montessori Congress in Prague in July. We have created few documents to share with you! A new Film Overview document that summarizes our current vision of the film and the entire project. It provides details about content, distribution plans and more. We have also created a document outlining Partnership Opportunities describing ways that schools and organizations can partner with us to reach our fundraising goals. It includes information about “Early Bird Screening Kits” and more! Feel free to contact us with any questions at
Thank you for your ongoing support! We could not have come this far without it and we are so grateful for your partnership.
