Angry Eye

with Jane Elliott

Angry Eye skillfully interweaves the young adults in the exercise with post-session interviews that show the participants struggling to come to terms with their recent experiences.

Program length 20 minutes
Topics: Diversity, Jane Elliott

Hailed as "a fascinating revisit" to the famous 1968 Blue-Eyes/Brown-Eyes Exercise in discrimination by Jane Elliott, this film documents the effects of racial prejudice with startling force and emotional intensity.

Taking pigmentation - in this case, eye color - as an arbitrary dividing line, Jane Elliott builds a microcosm of contemporary American society, compelling her more privileged blue-eyed participants to live in another world for the longest two and a half hours of their lives.

The Angry Eye skillfully interweaves the young adults in the exercise with post-session interviews that show the participants struggling to come to terms with their recent experiences. Through the intense and often painful emotions that the exercise provokes shines a hope that, someday, we will overcome the capricious lines that divide us - if only we can learn to accept and appreciate our differences.
