Death of the Revolution

UK, 2005 (MIFF 2006, Fiction Shorts)

Director: Chris Blaine, Ben Blaine

Death of the Revolution

Uplifting and very funny. ''You have nothing to lose except your break-time biscuit and the year five rights on the climbing frame.” When 10-year-old Tony is told off for stealing a pencil, he is gripped by revolutionary fervour. A classroom classic.
