bias
Director: Robin Hauser
Producers: Robin Hauser, Christie Herring
Year: 2018
Length: 88 minutes

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.

There is a test that measures unconscious biases: the Harvard-based Implicit Association Test, or IAT. bias embarks on an investigation into the nature of human bias, tracking down the test’s co-creators, Mahzarin Banaji and Anthony Greenwald, to dig into the science behind bias and its effects on our social and professional lives.

In settings such as a police deadly-force-decision simulator and a virtual reality lab designed to reduce racial bias, the film also considers the possibilities presented by new technology.

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
