We do as we’re told. Or do we?
In the early 1960s psychologist Stanley Milgram, in seeking to understand the Holocaust, ran a series of controversial experiments on obedience. An authority orders you to inflict painful shocks on another person. Most us will obey, claimed Milgram. But will we? And were Milgram’s experiments as much art as science? In staging previously un-filmed versions of the world’s most famous psychology experiment, Shock Room turns a light on the dark side of human behavior and forces us to ask ourselves: what would I do?
Join us for a special screening of Shock Room, joined by filmmaker Kathryn Miller for Q&A. Tickets are limited so book now to reserve your seat.
