The Civic Media Center Presents “The Stanford Prison Experiment” Co-hosted by Fight Toxic Prisons

On Monday, October 30th, the Civic Media Center will present a screening of the film “The Stanford Prison Experiment” starting at 7pm.

“The Stanford Prison Experiment” is a 2015 thriller directed by Kyle Patrick Alvarez that demonstrates what happens when male college students are given the roles of guards and prisoners in the basement of Stanford's psychology building. “The Stanford Prison Experiment” is based on a famous psychological experiment that was an attempt to understand the perceived power that comes along with the roles we are given.

There will be a discussion after the film and we will contrast the feature film with the actual experiment.
