The Exploration Of Millennial Anxieties In The Upcoming Film Stealing School [Trailer]

Young people have it tough when it comes to getting through college. The stress of how to pay for it alone should be enough right? Let alone paying for it and still having to deal with an uncertain future. Now, let’s add other controversial issues that can come up like racism, sexism, and power dynamics. Not to mention the question of the value of a liberal arts education.

This is where Vertical Entertainment’s new feature film, Stealing School comes in. In Li Dong’s directorial debut, they spotlight systemic racism in a unique way using dark comedy. We will witness this through the eyes of a female Asian student at a prestigious university. You can check out the trailer below!

Here is the synopsis for Stealing School:

April, a brilliant programmer with a promising future, is accused of plagiarism by Keith, a teaching assistant who drags her in front of an academic hearing to prevent her from graduating. While operating under the guise of an impartial panel, the three tribunal judges each have their own illicit motivations and personal biases that will secretly steer the course of the trial. By aggressively questioning a colourful group of witnesses, both April and Keith build their cases while becoming increasingly acrimonious towards each other.

As tensions rise, the facade of civility and political correctness begins to erode, revealing sinister and unflattering sides of all parties concerned. Behind the closed doors of a prestigious institution of higher learning, what began as a seemingly honorable pursuit of justice slowly turns into a chaotic display of corruption, pettiness, and naked self-interest.
