Synopsis

In an attempt to instruct his students about the dangers of fascism and autocracy, a German high-school teacher stages a bold experiment to show how easily such ideas can take root. He gets the pupils to take part in a practical project dubbed The Wave in which they will be adhere to a set of strict new rules. But the students take to the project rather too eagerly and the Wave gradually infects the entire school in this compelling fable of conformity and coercion.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
