School of Change

52 minutes 2013

This dadaist musical comedy takes place in a futuristic industrial compound where male instructors teach female recruits to perform obscure scientific procedures and sing songs about the beauty of change. It's hard to say what writer-director-production designer Jennet Thomas is getting at; this might be a genre-movie parody, a satire of institutionalized sexism, or just an extended gag about popular misperceptions of hard science (the technical discussions are all pretty much gibberish). The jokes are too arcane to register as anything other than non-sequiturs, though the color-coordinated sets and costumes are fun to look at; they display plenty of imagination in spite of an obvious low budget.
