Detachment: UK director Tony Kaye, who shook up the screen with his scathing Oscar nominated dramatic portrait of a charismatic young neo-nazi (Edward Norton) in American History X, returns with Detachment, touching on the horrors of high school burnout that is about much more than homework.

In this conversation with Arts Express, the man once
called 'crazier than I am' by his friend, the late Marlon Brando, mulls the classroom as metaphor for the human condition; why he brought a $275 million dollar lawsuit against Hollywood demanding he receive directing credit for American History X under the name Humpty Dumpty; and what it all has to do, or not, with 'the marketing holocaust.'

And discovered, no only that nobody ever actually goes to the bathroom there, but a place of pure female energy; a secretive addictive safe zone; and a sanctuary for highly therapeutic same sex conversation. Girl Time music by Vikki True. Airing on The Documentary Channel during March, Women's History Month.
