The Wave : a lesson for students everywhere


  • To explain to his students the atmosphere in the 1930’s Nazi-Germany, history teacher Burt Ross initiates a daring experiment. He declares himself leader of a new movement, called ‘The Wave’. Inspired, he proclaims ideas about Power, Discipline and Superiority. His students are strikingly willing to follow him. Soon the entire school is under the spell of ‘The Wave’. Anyone who refuses to be a part of the Movement, faces threats or worse. Ross himself gets carried away by his own experiment. Or has it turned into something more than an experiment? A climax is unavoidable, resulting in a hard lesson for both Ross and his students…
    (the whole movie appears to be on YouTube…)

    End of year graffiti walls at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.
    Murals by third year Fine Arts students have started popping up on some of the construction hoardings around the Registry building. The painting is by Emma Tuohy and Cameron Ralston; the front of the building features a vinyl design by Kelsey O’Hagan. Thanks to Hawkins Construction, Deco NZ Ltd and Computaleta Christchurch for supporting the students and supplying materials. Hopefully you’ll see more of this popping up around campus soon!
