New Campus Speech Mini-Documentary

March 22, 2017


Today, the Moving Picture Institute’s comedy web channel We the Internet TV released a new short documentary Silence U Part 2: What is Yale Becoming?, the follow-up to its 2016 viral hit Silence U: Is the University Killing Free Speech and Open Debate?

The film examines Yale’s notorious controversy surrounding administrative controls over Halloween costumes. The film asks: If universities can’t tolerate debate about controversial issues, how can they call themselves places of learning? The 12-minute documentary has already garnered press in the New York Times and the College Fix.

From director and Moving Picture Institute filmmaker Rob Montz:

“The silence from students shocked me. Forget what’s right—students openly told me they wouldn’t say anything controversial or speak out against the administration because it could jeopardize their job prospects.”
