Home horrors.

by Syd Briscoe

UNICEF: “Homework” - 2 mins 50s

Parents who were introduced to the struggles of home-schooling during lockdown will be particularly gripped by this visceral film from UNICEF, which addresses the barriers preventing children all over the world from accessing education. Yet there are far greater threats at play than a dodgy Wi-Fi signal.

The film takes the form of a Buzzfeed-style listicleŚ'Five Ways to Get Your Kids to Finish Their Homework'Świth the chirpy titles immediately at odds with the worrying scenes on display. From unstable home environments to being forced to work instead of learn, it's a gut-punching reminder that having one's kids complain about Zoom lessons is, in fact, a privilege.
