The Elephant on Campus is a documentary currently in production. The film-maker has released a number of clips from the film as he continues to raise funds. The clip below is particularly interesting. From the web site, it reads “The story follows DIY filmmaker Michael Newman on his journey to find answers from the American higher education system that screwed him. Through his journey, Michael’s goal is to create a movie that is educational, engaging, and inspirational.”
You’ll find a handful of other clips of the film here. (Select the “Videos” tab.)
Other documentaries on higher education, include:
Indoctrinate U. A low budget film (2007) that employs the Michael Moore method of film-making (affable film-maker, camera-operator in-tow, confronts and exposes the ridiculous and unfair). Evan Maloney‘s target? Political correctness on campus. (After spending years in a sociology department – the hot bed of PC on campus – I’m sympathetic to the film-maker’s argument.) Note: the entire film is available via Youtube.com.
