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.”
