Feedback from teachers:

"Why did the film have such an impact on my Gr. 12 students? First of all, it caught their attention with well-paced delivery, crisp photography, current music, a recognizable actor, and students who were their age. Although the students in our ethnically-diverse classroom integrate well with each other, they are aware of racial tensions that exist at many degrees of intensity around them that make the extreme case portrayed in your film understandable and meaningful. The film could be related to many of the topics discussed in our Geography class: race relations, heirarchies of authority, components of culture, recognition of opinion and bias, social activism, gender relations, solutions to issues and their consequences--all are applicable. The documentary also left everyone feeling the optimistic hope that change is possible."
– David W. Joiner, St. Andrew's College

"When I saw the film, I felt it talked to students, not at them, and I could see the potential it had to open up positive discussions regarding race today. It's a great springboard to get kids more comfortable and to open up about race."
– Mike Strauss, St.Ignatius High School
