The World is a Classroom was made as part of Underground Zero, an omnibus film in which independent filmmakers responded to the events of 9/11. The World is a Classroom documents a conflict between a teacher and a student in a classroom shortly after 9/11 to allegorically explore the wider conflict between the U.S. and Al Queda, as well as to explore the dynamics of power in any given conflict. It also attempts to suggest alternatives to the use of force as a solution to conflict.
