Idea #94 - Alternative Math
We saw a short film titled 'Alternative Math' - an 8 minute film which revolves around a conflict of interest between a math teacher and the rest of America. The reason for the conflict? Whether 2+2=4 or 22.
This satirical take on the media and politics of America, with their tendency to warp facts and misinterpret them to create drama has been nominated for several awards.
Opinions and facts differ, and one cannot be replaced with the other.
The film shows how the 'truth' is not about who is right, but more so about who holds power in society. It's a good representation of how a complete non issue is given the shape of something life changing.
