I don’t believe that Rhymes for Young Ghouls is constructed well enough to effectively teach people about this horrible injustice. It’s a great film; very well directed, very well acted, and very well built up but that’s not what’s in question here. The question is whether its effective at telling the story of residential schools.

Film serves in the Coles notes role nowadays in the classroom when it comes to history especially when it comes to events that aren’t going to be talked about in bigger budget movies. People (not just kids) are much more connected and are much more on the go as compared to 20 years about or even when I was in high school 10 years ago. This has led to a culture of speed and sitting around reading, or even learning in some cases, is considered boring so it makes sense for film to pick up the slack to teach people something that they would once upon a time have just read about.
