Tender, controversial and inspiring portrait of a professor
nataliekarine8 February 2011
This documentary explores issues of academic freedom and religious conservatism in a university, located in the Bible Belt in the United States. The filmmakers provide a tender, sometimes controversial, portrait of a professor willing to push his students by exposing them to new ideas and by often destabilizing their preconceived notions of what art or music ought to be. As an art teacher myself, I find that the role of an educator is to teach their students to keep an open mind on a new subject and to think outside the box. Doug DiBianco took many risks in his career as a professor, but always in order to show that art reflects its society and often does so by pushing boundaries. I grade it an A+!
