This is not your typical Perpetual Film Festival entry. Usually, we find some new work but a new talent. Seeing as this film was released in 1996, it isn't new. And the director (Trey Parker) does not need us to bring him exposure.
That said, this is a perfect example of making the most of a seemingly constrictive project. When it comes to short educational videos, nothing promises more built-in lameness than a 15 minute lecture on racial diversity. But, by keeping the pace brisk, the tone light and the gags frequent, Parker really raises above the standard issue material and delivers something truly memorable.
Favorite bit? Carp. Hands down.
