The Minister for Exams

Paul Trewartha

The Minister for Exams (Paul Trewartha)
L'Alternativa Hall / Hall Focus - Session 4 / The Minister for Exams


Based on a poem by Brian Patten, The Minister for Exams explores the oppressive nature of education, as represented in context of a child's undefiled imagination. Designed to manipulate the flow of vision through a use of space, editing and direction, the film addresses the relationship between language and movement, thought and expression.
