Short Film Saturday: Anatomy of a Snow Day
I have previously featured films by Zachary Maxwell. First, was an exposé of public school lunches Yuck; next, a child’s last letter to Santa Claus; most recently, a film about ADD and ADHD. Now comes an investigation into the factors and machinations of decisions about snow days for New York Public Schools.
Not to give too much away but the touched upon rarity of the days does create a circle that closes and is underscored humorously. Once again the film is funny an informative.
I believe that at this point it’s impossible to jinx things this winter. We’re not out of the woods yet with a little more than three weeks to the vernal equinox, so it still is topical.
