"I'm Jane Elliott. I'm your resident bitch for the day - welcome to the workshop." Anti-racism expert, Jane Elliott.
That's how anti-racism expert Jane Elliott describes her role in this reality-based documentary that challenges Canadian's attitudes towards Native Canadians. "Even nice Canadians are racist." Whether or not you agree, that's Ms. Elliott's starting point as she welcomes and bullies 22 Canadians who have volunteered to participate in her internationally renowned workshop. With cameras rolling, she divides the unsuspecting participants by eye color, blue-eyes in one group, brown-eyes (many of them Native Canadian) in the other. Elliott turns the tables on the participants treating the blue eyes as "persons of color," confronting and brow-beating them, while the "brown eyes" get treated with respect. Filmed in Regina, Saskatchewan, Indecently Exposed!, illustrates and exposes how systemic racism continues to thrive in Canada today.
