Lynne Sachs / Sjedinjene Američke Države (2021) / 5 min.

U pismu francuskom režiseru Jean Viguu, Lynne Sachs kazuje misli o klasiku „Zero for Conduct“ iz 1933. godine u kojem grupa školskih dječaka vode anarhističku pobunu protiv svojih autoritarnih učitelja.

Razmišljajući o pobuni desničarskih demonstranata u Kapitolu SAD-a 6. januara 2021. godine, Sachs se pita kako se nevina igra ili proračunati protest mogu tako brzo pretvoriti u haos i nasilje.
