Bret Weinstein, Heather Heying and the Evergreen Equity Council
Director Mike Nayna:
"Part one of a three-part series of short films about Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying's experience at Evergreen State College.
This series is associated with a feature length documentary "Grievance Scholars"."
by Helen Pluckrose, James A. Lindsay and Mike Nayna:
"What happened just under two years ago at Evergreen State College needs to be seen to be believed. It also needs to be made sense of because, without an understanding of the ideology underlying them, the actions of Evergreen staff and students are extremely difficult to understand. To address this problem, documentary filmmaker Mike Nayna is unraveling the layers of the Evergreen story in a series of three short films on the bizarre and frightening events that rocked the small Washington College.
The first part of this documentary, Bret Weinstein, Heather Heying and the Evergreen Equity Council, was psychologically disturbing—so much so that that several viewers reported feeling physically ill, and many compared the scenes to events within Maoist China. In that part, Nayna sets the stage for the Evergreen meltdown by depicting the fundamentalist religious nature of the belief system rooted in Applied Postmodernism that had taken root in the small, ultra-progressive school."
