In The Unmaking of a College, students at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts confront their new president’s underhanded attempt to shut down the school. In the process, they discover that a powerful institution is bullying their inexperienced administration into giving up the independence of one of the most innovative colleges in the United States. This raucous ode to democracy in action will invoke viewers with the courage required to stand up to power.

This film opens in theaters on February 11 and virtual cinemas on February 25. A Zeitgeist Films release in association with Kino Lorber.

Reviews

“Presents Hampshire College in Massachusetts as a canary in the coal mine of liberal-
arts education”

“An engaging and inspirational documentary”

“A quick portrait of students ensuring their standing in education, rather than being
treated as dollar signs by the educational climate that is meant to benefit and support
them.”

“This should be mandatory viewing for every single student out there all over the world.”

“Incisively encapsulates the historical efficacy of student protests and financial
pressures facing small liberal-arts colleges.”
