In 1968, Jane Elliott changed the lives of her class of third grade students by teaching them about the consequences of racism firsthand. By dividing the students into groups based on eye color, she put them in the position of minorities, giving them a wake-up call.
The Angry Eye is a documentary film in which Elliott revises her original experiment with a group of young adults in place of third grade students. The film captures what happens during her diversity training session and how the participants respond to being judged and criticized for their eye color. At the same time, the documentary weaves in interviews from people who have been a part of Elliott's trainings in the past. By the end of the video, viewers will have a new perspective on the issue of racism and other forms of discrimination.
