Dare a University Professor to watch this through to the end!
This documentary holds a mirror up to liberal academia in the US and dares them to look at the reflection it casts.
It reminded me of my college days, where I felt that I needed to conceal my conservative views from my professors to preserve my good grades.
It also reminded me of something from "Someplace To Be Flying" by Charles de Lint:
"Then how do you change the world?" "By being strong and true." ..."The best change you can make is to hold up a mirror so that people can look into it and change themselves. That's the only way a person can be changed." ..."And you know," Maida added. "That mirror can be a story you hear, or just somebody else's eyes. Anything that reflects back so that you see yourself in it."
In this little film, Coyne Maloney has skillfully crafted his mirror, but that was the easy part. The real challenge is getting his subjects to gaze into it. In order to even see this film, I had to buy it from the film maker's web page. I'm sure that "Indoctrinate U" won't be winning any awards at the "Aspen Filmfest" or the "Woodstock Film Festival".
Not for lack of merit, but for lack of an audience.
