Description
Summary:You're walking down the street and you see someone approaching. You glance at his or her face and see-what, exactly? Filmed in London, this program brings together more than two dozen total strangers to reveal the hidden judgments people make about those they don't know. Cleverly composed of nothing more than juxtaposed faces and unvarnished commentary by the film's subjects, Conversation creates an edgy meta-dialogue on how we tend to project our fears and desires onto our fellow humans. Illuminating and unsettling-and a guaranteed discussion-starter for courses in the areas of psychology, sociology, communications, and race/ethnicity/gender studies as viewers become aware of their own preconceived notions about otherness.
