Summary Hailed as 'a fascinating revisit' to the 1968 'Blue Eyed/Brown-Eyed' exercise in discrimination, this film documents the effects of racial prejudice. 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 film interweaves footage of 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. --container
