Experiment 20: A Dramatization of Three Women in Milgram’s Obedience to Authority Experiments

AHP readers may find Experiment 20, the Guardian’s recent collaboration with Macquarie University, of interest:

Experiment 20 dramatises the stories of three women who took part in the psychologist Stanley Milgram’s ‘Obedience to Authority’ experiments in 1962, and insisted on being heard. More than 800 people were recruited for what they were told was a study about learning and memory. The scenario they took part in urged them to inflict electric shocks on another person. This film by Kathryn Millard is the last in Guardian Australia’s Present Traces series, presented by Macquarie University and linked by archive material.
