Society Spy: Open Media

Written by


This week I went along to Open Media’s screening of Waiting for Superman, a critical documentary presenting the issues concerning the American education system.

The screening was a relaxed affair, and I didn’t feel nervous attending on my own. I was however surprised by the low levels of attendance, as I know that they usually draw a big crowd. Unfortunately, there was no discussion after the documentary, a slight shame when undoubtedly many opinions would have been aroused.

Nevertheless, Open Media gives us students a great opportunity to access thought-provoking films that wouldn’t usually be easily seen or discussed.  I really would encourage as many people as possible to make the most of this opportunity whilst they can!

Score: 7/10
