Skin: Learning Resource by Film Education

There is something very grim about young people being lied to as part of a concerted effort to build their sense of superiority and God-given right to dominate their fellow human beings.  This is exactly the dynamic at work in the first classroom scene in SKIN. You can re-read the scene in the previous section.
