The Rainbow Experiment (2018)
Things spiral out of control in a high school in Manhattan when a terrible accident involving a science experiment injures a kid for life. A who-dun-it with a how-they-saw-it leads to an explosion of emotions touching the teachers, the parents, the school authorities and, ultimately, the students. Uniquely told from the perspective of the victim—whose phantom figure guides us through the story, but who in reality is still fighting for his life in the hospital—the film tackles the ongoing drama from every angle. This winding, extravagant, propulsive film takes you on a wild ride and challenges you to see beyond what may happen, what you may want to happen, and what you may have missed while it was happening to what may not have happened at all.
