In THE UNMAKING OF A COLLEGE, students at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts confront their new president’s underhanded attempt to shut down the school.

In the process, they discover that a powerful institution is bullying their inexperienced administration into giving up the independence of one of the most innovative colleges in the United States.

This raucous ode to democracy in action will invoke viewers with the courage required to stand up to power.
