22 March at 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
ICE Film Club is back, this month’s film was chosen by Richard Gurner of Caerphilly Observer fame. His choice is Das Experiment (2001)
Das Experiment is a 2001 German thriller film directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel. It is based on Mario Giordano’s novel Black Box and deals with a social experiment which resembles Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford prison experiment of 1971, where 20 male participants are hired to play prisoners and guards in a prison. The “prisoners” have to follow seemingly mild rules, and the “guards” are told to retain order without using physical violence.
