The Dollar Bottom

This 1980 fictional British short film took home an Academy Award for Best Short Subject. In the picture, a group of young British schoolboys decides to fight back against corporal punishment at their school by creating a surprisingly detailed insurance scheme that will pay off students who are caned by their teachers. What begins as a silly idea quickly becomes hugely profitable for the boys, as they seek to have their company listed on the stock market. While comedic, the film paints a telling portrait of what - if any - place physical punishment in schools has in a modern society.
