I feel like Maya Deren is appreciated by so many different kinds of people
with different interests that showing her work could be really neat for high
school students. It might also be neat to show something like Harry Smith's
"Mirror Animations". Helen Hill might also be nice.

 I'm just thinking about my high school self and what would have been
handleable at that time and age and I feel like colorful sweet or kind of
psychedelic things would have been really nice to be introduced to. -- Oh!
Godard's "The Oldest Profession" could be wonderful -- it is a short film
that I saw once at a theater in LA (during high school!) and have adored
ever since.

Jan Lenika could be good too.. "Rhinoceros"

I have always thought that music videos could be a really useful way to
introduce film art or experimental film to high school students. Because
music videos are so incorporated into pop/ main stream media and yet the
videos are free from many of the constructs of Hollywood. People can get
away with a lot more in music videos... this one could be perfect - -
