Two & Two (2011)
In a drab, anonymous gray school governed by a strict authoritarian regime, an apparently unremarkable day is turned on its head following a seemingly ridiculous announcement. Disbelieving at first, the all male, identically uniformed pupils are informed that what they had always been taught as fact is no longer true. When the incredulous students speak out, what initially seems laughably absurd becomes desperately real as they are forced to question how far they will go to stand up for their beliefs. Two & Two is an allegory for the absurdness of dictatorship and tyranny - and the resilience of the human spirit.- Written by Anonymous
With the principle's announcement over the loudspeakers that change is imminent in the school, the uniformly attired students assemble in their lustreless and muted classroom, only to hear from the very lips of their teacher, an absurd and illogical demand. Against such a preposterous statement, no opposition will be accepted and with the teacher strongly demanding to accept the altered truth, more and more will succumb, however, solely, yet, boldly, someone among the compliant pupils still stands his ground, representing the voice of reason. In the end, as the inflexible system, with the teacher as its vehicle, relentlessly oppresses the freedom of speech, is there a place for the obstinate one who refuses to participate in the dogma of the many?- Written by Nick Riganas
What happens when in an attempt to re-educate the masses everything you have been taught is proclaimed false and your whole universe of values crumbles violently before your eyes?- Written by Nick Riganas
