Description:
This six-film series features the innovative and often controversial experiments of social psychologist Stanley Milgram. The series centers around the defining experiments of Milgram’s career, most notably his revolutionary study on obedience to authority. The film Obedience includes the only authentic footage of Milgram’s famous 1961 experiment, in which subjects at Yale University were told to administer electric shocks of increasing severity to another person. The stunning results of the experiment, which showed that sixty-five percent of participants administered the experiment’s final massive 450-volt shock, remain relevant more than fifty years later as people continue to ask themselves, “Would I pull that lethal switch?"
