In THE UNMAKING OF A COLLEGE, students at Hampshire College confront a new president's underhanded attempt to shut down their school and discover that a powerful institution is bullying an inexperienced administration into giving up the independence of one of the most experimenting colleges in the United States. A raucous ode to democracy in action, this film evokes the courage required to stand up to power at a time when many liberal arts colleges are failing.


“Presents Hampshire College in Massachusetts as a canary in the coal mine of liberal-arts education.” – Ben Kenigsberg, THE NEW YORK TIMES
