Summary: In Blue Eyed we meet a group of 40 teachers, policemen, school administrators and social workers in/from Kansas City Blacks, Hispanics, Whites, men and women. The "blue eyed" participants are confronted with pseudo-scientific explanations of their inferiority, culturally biased IQ tests and discrimination. Within a few hours under Elliotts destructive power we see how adult persons despair and (almost) go crazy, not being able to cope with the simplest orders. Similar to the famous-infamous Milgram experiment, the participants, who are fully informed about the "rules of the game", can not escape their role. Cruel reality emerges from the game that plunges some participants into unforeseen emotional depths.
