The Boulder International Film Festival is coming up this week (Feb 28-March 3rd). Our branch is co-sponsoring the film Bias, which will show Saturday, March 2nd at 10 am at First Presbyterian Church. There will be a talkback after the screening in addition to writing up 5 calls to action for the BIFF website that give people ways they can get involved in addressing the issues raised in the film.
“The toxic impacts of bias make headlines everyday: sexual harassment, racial profiling, the pay gap. As humans we are biased, yet few of us are willing to admit it. We confidently make snap judgments but are shockingly unaware of the impact our assumptions have on those around us. This documentary feature follows filmmaker Robin Hauser on a journey to uncover her hidden biases and explore how unconscious bias affects relationships, workplaces, our justice system and technology. bias contemplates the most pressing question: can we de-bias our brains?
Directed by Robin Hauser”
