New Acquisition: SCHOOLING THE WORLD

Cinema Politica’s latest addition to our catalogue of films is Carol Black’s SCHOOLING THE WORLD, a thoughtful and provocative treatment of the repercussions of adopting Western-style educational systems in non-Western cultures.

Collecting interviews from across Africa, Asia, and beyond, Black makes a compelling case for the threat of a global monoculture wherein children around the world learn all the same things, all the same way, all as an indoctrination into global capitalism. Frequently punctuated by quotations by great thinkers from around the world, SCHOOLING THE WORLD extrapolates from educational systems a compelling and compulsory argument against the sustainability of Western thinking, and that the best way to counteract these consumptive forces is to change the way we learn about our world.
