Director Statement

In 2015 we started the Feature film “The System” project, with a goal to laugh at the sad situation in school education around the world and spread the message about modern creative teaching methods.
We believe that by making people realize how bad and outdated current education is to prepare children for the ever-changing real world and point to modern teaching methods, little by little we'll make a world a better place!
Due to COVID-19 related restrictions film had a limited release in Lithuanian theaters and has received great feedback from an audience, critics, and people in education, including teachers, principles of different schools, education officials, and even representatives of the president of Lithuania.
