Storyboard Text

  • The only way you will really understand this concept is if you experience it yoursleves.
  • Imperialism 
  • How can we do that?
  • Hop in kids, you're about to find out!
  • Imperial
  • Who are you? What are you guys doing here? This is not a place where you can just stand around!! 
  • Two students confused in a classroom because they don’t understand the concept of imperialism. Their teacher (secretly Robert Owens), tell them he can't explain imperialism in a lesson. 
  • We are here from New Harmony and were just wondering if you could show these children what kind of things you do here. What is imperialism to you? 
  •  No matter what it takes, these workers must meet their quotas. They work hard, and we treat them well in return.
  • Zoom in on a magical golf cart/bus that transports the students back into time. Everyone sits down on the cart and Jeff drives into a portal. 
  •  This place is horrible. I am disgusted. We will never complain about our workload ever again! You have given us such a harmonious community.  
  • rufni uniun siufnuinr ufnsiurn firufnirunfr
  • Everyone falls into the middle of a Congo plantation (there are people gathering rubber, there is a white governer that is yelling at Africans for not gathering enough and there is the sound of screams and whips cracking). Children look around with wide eyes and horrified faces.
  • Well, this imperialism lesson is over. Let's get back to work on another topic!
  • Communism
  •  The teacher (Owens) moves in front of the children in a defensive stance. White man gets cocky and shakes his head yes. Afterward, he cringes and leads the children to find the workers. 
  • (Whisper) Don't listen to him!
  • Owens wants to show the children the slaves, so he leads the children to a cramped and shabby hut where he finds a letter with pictures. He shows them to his students and then tells them utopian socialism is better than imperialism (lifestyle, conditions, community etc. 
  • Everyone runs back to the golf cart and Jeff drives back into the portal. Goes back to the future and they end up in the classroom.
