If this had been a short film for an English GCSE, he might at least have spelled 'repetition' correctly.

I'm sorry but I didn't get it, the best I can come up with is that he has a three day week at school followed by a weekend and yes he can't spell Repetition. I'm saying he, although it was a he in the film but obviously he didn't film it. Any background on this Thunders, is it a relative or something?

Trying to find an interpretation of such short film is almost always very subjective, and I will share mine, even though it might be something different than what is intended and you lot might see something else in it. I think that rep"ititi"on is on purpose as it symbolizes the repetition. There is no social interaction, just a robotic repetition of walking and sitting. It would have been even stronger, if you couldn't see the feet of someone else in school, as you might feel he is totally alone in the world then. The boy seems to go through a depression, tries to break out of his chore, in order to break out of those feelings, walking through an area with thorns and barbwire and ends up with the view of a emptiness. I like how it is still easy to walk through those thorns, so it is easy to break out even though it feel like obstacles to him, but all he finds is emptiness and thus hasn't won anything.

I actually enjoyed it, even though the acting wasn't superb and neither the camerawork nor the edit were anything special. thank thunders.

Ugh. Yes, the word 'repetition' is spelled incorrectly. Good eye.

Didn’t occur to you that the film makers intended to do this? Nah.. most likely escaped post production. A clue that this might be intentional is the fact that this is an arty short film.

Ditto for the mundane repetitive nature of this kids life. That was the obvious point no?

Or the acting is awesome. Hard to tell if that is sarcastic. Ok. Nice quip.

And #4. Ughlah. Thank you for your thoughts and interpretation of the film and its possible message and meaning. You said something meaningful… imagine that! In this world where drive-by snark, slur, unsupported accusations and a refusal to engage in a tiny bit of critical thinking or reflection or follow-up somehow counts as ‘discourse’ this was a delightful change of pace.

Good stuff Ughlah!

If I could add to your analysis. I assume they worked in a play on words with ‘'repitition'. Perhaps they decided to be highbrow (this is an arty film after all) and they are using the French word répit’ meaning a short period of rest or relief, with ‘ition’ to characterize the scene where he looks over the green vista? Just throwing that out there.

There was a distinct reason why it was spelled Repitition, I wished I'd remember or would have added it to the post, because I can't find the short film any longer. 8-)

Good on him for deciding not to be another brick in the wall. Yet, doing so before learning what you don't know you don't know (a primary function of academia; your mileage may vary) is risky business. Shame he didn't have anyone to teach him about being free to create an identity, meaning, and purpose outside of enculturation...or did he? :P
