Bias....you're human, you're biased. Now what?
The documentary feature "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. "Bias" contemplates the most pressing question: can we de-bias our brains?
To learn more about the film, visit the Bias Film website.
Christie Herring has worked in documentary filmmaking for over 20 years and has recently edited and produced Code: Debugging the Gender Gap and edited (with Jean Kawahara) NOVA's Point of No Return.
