“Essential” yet still invisible, a group of child care providers emerges from the rubble of the pandemic to become unlikely activists.


From an award-winning filmmaking team, MAKE A CIRCLE is a character-driven documentary that follows the directors and teachers at three child care centers over several years. When the pandemic pushes an already fragile childcare system to the brink, this ensemble of educators is determined to change how society values the education of its youngest citizens.


Weaving together the magic they create in the classroom, the struggles they endure at home, and their drive to change the system for the better, MAKE A CIRCLE is a moving portrait of life as an early childhood educator and a rallying cry for a child care system in crisis.
