As active citizenship and social justice are both concepts which are explicitly taught, applauded and encouraged in schools and universities. Better Left Unsaid offers an opportunity to explore the nature of political and activist tactics and discuss at what point ideals such as equality, equity and diversity – and the means that we attain them – change from a noble pursuit to dangerous extremism.
With this in mind a resource toolkit was developed in partnership with Australian Teachers of Media Incorporated (ATOM) to help guide high school and university students around the world on their journey of exploring these nuances and tactics through engaging media.
The premise behind Better Left Unsaid, lies in the unconfined analysis of the often violent extremism of today’s Western political landscape. As liberal democracy becomes increasingly challenged in the West, we expose the dangerous tactics employed by the radical-left and far-right, alike. In a world where political polarization frames the way in which we live, a new path forward of unity is needed more than ever before. The value of the film lies in its impact, brevity and digestibility — as we confront the philosophical underpinnings of the radical left and their extreme right counterpart.
