Getting on the Bandwagon

Top of page

Designed to stimulate discussion, this film illuminates the fairly common tendency to go along with the crowd, to stay on the safe side of a difference of opinions. The story revolves around the paintings of a new artist. When the parents of a close friend first see her canvases they consider them odd and unconventional. After her work is discovered by a socially prominent family they do an about-face and join the chorus of approval. The film invites audience comment on independence and conformity of thought.
