Movie/Documentary-Standford Prison Experiment

This experiment was conducted back in 1971 to see how prisons fuctioned. Mainly look at how power played a huge roll in the actions of prisoners and guards and how emotion plays a large role in everything.

There are some criminal justice majors on my wing so they were particularly interested in this. It is a very shocking movie. Afterwards we had a great conversation on how this can relate to us today.
