Description: Over the past twenty years, Jane Elliot, a former teacher, has committed herself to leading a fight against prejudice, ignorance and racism in society. She continues to practice the same philosophy which she began with her school class after Martin Luther King's death in 1968. In only 15 minutes with some 30 people, Jane Elliot manages to build up a realistic microcosmos of society today with all its phenomena and feelings. As already known from the ill-reputed Milgram experiment, even participants who knew the rules are unable to remain involved. What starts as a game turns into cruel reality which causes some participants' emotions to errupt with unforeseen intensity.
