How Free People Think

Institute History

  • 2021 Sundance Insitute | Sandbox Fund


Can science solve racism in America? How Free People Think follows Stanford psychologist and MacArthur “genius” Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt on her journey to uncover and overcome bias: the hidden prejudice that shapes what we see, think, and do. Inspired by her bestselling book Biased, we join Jennifer on her quest as a Black mother and scientist determined to protect her family — and to find a practical way forward in the fight for racial equity.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
