Synopsis

This energetic satire follows a series of African-American students, including socially awkward gay nerd Lionel and campus firebrand Samantha, at a privileged, predominantly white college campus. After controversy breaks out following a racist party involving some of the most powerful students on site, the film rewinds to show the events that led to such a disturbing incident and their consequences. Loosely based on a notorious set of parties that recently took place on some American college campuses, the film is stacked with references to contemporary racial politics, gender, economic privilege and homophobia. Although the serious issues are never allowed to overwhelm the humour, the film retains an anger guaranteed to provoke debate.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
