“Would you rather be a guard or a prisoner?”

In 1971, Dr. Philip Zimbardo conducted a notorious experiment that randomly assigned 24 male undergraduates to be either a guard or a prisoner. What was intended to be a civilized prison simulation quickly turned into a psychological nightmare, with “guards” brutally abusing and degrading “inmates.” This is the story of The Stanford Prison Experiment.

Directed by Kyle Patrick Alvarez, feature film The Stanford Prison Experiment made a spine-chilling premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. The film bring together an ensemble cast, which includes Maze Runner star Ki Hong Lee, who portrays Gavin Chan, a Stanford undergrad assigned the role of prisoner in the controversial experiment.

The ensemble cast also includes Billy Crudup, Ezra Miller, Olivia Thirby, Nelsan Ellis, Michael Angarano, Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, Keir Gilchrist, Thomas Mann, Johnny Simmons, James Frecheville, Jesse Carere, Matt Bennett and Jack Kilmer.

Coup d’Etat Films released the trailer for The Stanford Prison Experiment last Friday.
