12 Angry Jurors

Director’s Note

What happens when justice is jeopardized by human prejudice? This is the central question of Twelve Angry Jurors and a timely theme for today. How often does the judicial system fail because of an unfair balance of power? How often in our own lives do we miss the truth because of our preconceived ideas about how a certain group of people behave? As we enter a Chicago jury room on a hot day in the summer of 1955, let us explore these questions from all angles, just as jurors are meant to probe a case from many viewpoints.
