Werner Herzog - Film Series

In the absence of the director, the residents of a reformatory rebel. An educator tries in vain to oppose the impending chaos and captures one of the rebels in his office. The sudden unrestraint sparks the imagination of the inmates, who cross boundaries with relish but without a clear goal. Herzog shot the film with people of small stature on Lanzarote.
