Hailed as a "fascinating revisit" to the famous 1970 blue eyed/brown eyed 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 overcome the capricious lines that divide us ; if only we can learn to accept and appreciate our differences.
