Lange was a filmmaker who looked at social systems in action, often focusing on people at work. In 1977 Lange videoed multiple school lessons at public and private schools in Oxfordshire. The lessons were then shown back to the teachers and pupils, with both lessons and this footage of the participants' reactions ultimately exhibited together. The tapes invite reflection on how educational environments greatly shape the ways in which information is communicated and received.
