There was an indie film a few years back that came out after Columbine. It followed these kids around through their everyday school lives- literally there would be 5, 10 solid minutes of the kid walking down the hall, etc. In the end the school is broken out in chaos when two boys bring guns to school and start shooting students and teachers. It’s very eye-opening.
The movie was called “Elephant.”
My business teacher was on the subject of Columbine one day and refered to the boys who shot the place up as “crazy.” This pissed me off. Because It just gives more evidence to the fact that no one pays any attention to how fucked up higschool is. How fucked up life is.
The film has the very same message as my painting. There are pieces of wallpaper clippings to portray the “room” of which the elephant roams.
This goes hand in hand with my writing “Ode to My Nazi-fuck Highschool”. The (Elephant in the Room is jabbing his arm with a herion needle.)
