Bias

Exploring how unconscious bias impacts gender and race inequity

2018 | Running Time: 88 minutes | Rating: NR

The toxic effects of bias make headlines every day: sexual harassment, racial profiling, the pay gap. As humans, we are biased, yet few of us are willing to admit it. We confidently make snap judgments, but we are shockingly unaware of the impact our assumptions have on those around us. The documentary feature BIAS follows filmmaker Robin Hauser on a journey to uncover her hidden biases and explore how unconscious bias defines relationships, workplaces, our justice system and technology. Humorous anecdotes, alarming exposés, and Robin’s acute vulnerability prompt viewers to reflect on their own “gut feelings,” when to trust them, and how to let them go. BIAS premiered at the 2018 Bentonville Film Festival. Filmmakers: Robin Hauser, Director/Producer; Christie Herring, Producer/Editor
