Class Wars is a provocative and timely documentary exploring the far-reaching impact of the pandemic on the American public education system. Through dark visuals and a propulsive, synth-driven score, the film exposes how the school privatization movement exploited distance learning, stoked anti-intellectual "culture wars", and pandemic-era policies to further erode trust in public schools and criminalize critical thinking.
Divided into five compelling parts, the project features interviews with education experts, moral philosophers, politicians, teachers, and the students who experienced the pandemic's upheaval during their high school years. Intertwining these interviews with gripping archival footage to add emotional and historical context, "Class Wars" critically examines the challenges faced by the education system and centers the humanity of those navigating this unprecedented crisis.
