During the first three minutes or so of this quite unique and interesting film, Plato's Allegory of the Cave plays the role of introduction: lays out the conflict of the film, and if I may say so, the whole human race's conflict, to later on discuss, present evidence and incisive, fundemental questions about what does it really mean to educate. The Astonishing begginings of school, tracing it's roots on totalitarism regimes such as National-Socialism. Does it sounds familiar yet? Pink Floyd's The Wall, maybe?
If it weren't for it's duration, which is partly compensated by the fascinating data presented, it can be a bit too much (145 mins.). Hope you like this and learn something new.
By The Way, I forgot to mention it!! Prohibited Education has got a Creative Commons License and they want you to share it, copy it, and spread the word!! Also, yesterday was the online world premiere, so consider this the freshest loaf of bread you can find on Education regards!!
