The movie selection for March is The Stanford Prison Experiment
In 1971, Stanford University Professor Dr. Philip Zimbardo cast 24 male student volunteers as prisoners and guards in a simulated jail to examine the source of abusive behavior in the prison system. The results astonished the world, as participants went from middle-class undergrads to drunk-with-power sadists and submissive victims in just a few days. Based on a true story. Film starts at 12:30pm.
