One of my dear old friends, Rob Pilichowski, has been working on this documentary for the last 10 years* and needs some help to bring it across the finish line so he’s set up a Kickstarter to try to raise some funds.
When I watched Pretty Sweet a while back, one of the things that kind of surprised me was how much I dug the opening song, Synthesize by Maximum Hedrum. It felt like some sort of weird Sabbath worship electronica and I couldn’t stop listening. It now makes total sense because I just found out that this is a new project from Derek Green of Sepultura. I knew there had to be a banger at the helm.
Ms. Jane Elliott’s “brown eyes, blue eyes” experiment in 1970 (the third one after her first in 1968). This “Eye of Storm” documentary was made by William Peters in 1970 for ABC News and later included in the documentary “A Class Divided” (1985), which included a class reunion (of 1984.)
The most telling moment is when Russell used “brown eyes” as a derogatory term to call John name, only a couple of hours through. Though, the experiment was too short to allow it to get to the point when a “brown-eyes” person does so to another fellow “brown-eyes” person.
