Passing Judgement

Are selection tests and interviews ever objective?
Or are they really just based on personal prejudice?

One of my first experiments with observational film-making, I made this film during my time as a postgraduate student at the National Film and Television School.

Two school leavers endure a rigorous week-long selection course on a remote, windswept Scottish island. Incisive editing dramatically reveals why one candidate is judged successful whilst the other fails.
