Teach You A Lesson
This film is an account of a 13-year-old boy's shoplifting escapade. It is narrated by a teen voice (Madeleine Sami) while adult actors act out the drama as kids. What starts out as teen shenanigans (a porn stash is accrued with the five-finger discount) turns unsettling...
Things get dark when Dad discovers the stash and administers a beating.
The child’s voice works as a distinct contrast to the drama appearing on-screen. Shot using mainly hand-held cameras, this is a grim and affecting drama about domestic abuse. Gregory King's Teach You A Lesson was selected for the New Zealand and Melbourne International Film Fesivals.
