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

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
