*/*About the film: */A city is ravaged by an epidemic of instant "white 
blindness." Those first afflicted are quarantined by the authorities in 
an abandoned mental institution where the newly created "society of the 
blind" quickly breaks down. A gripping drama that asks, "are all things 
equal when you cannot see?" What implications does this have for our 
work as educators? Our post-film discussion will focus on the powerful 
themes and our assumptions about how we think, speak, and act amidst the 
dominant paradigms in which we operate /[Run time: 121 minutes]/._
About the Faculty and Staff Development Series*/: Brought to you by the 
Center for Cultural Pluralism, the Faculty and Staff Development Series 
offers participants an educational opportunity to dialogue and issues of 
intersecting identities and explore implications for their work as 
educators. Past programs have included dinner/discourse film screenings, 
visiting scholars, panel discussions, and social justice training programs.

/*About the Center for Cultural Pluralism:*/ Established in 1999 at the 
Allen House, the Center for Cultural Pluralism (CCP) is dedicated to 
helping UVM achieve its core mission to provide quality multicultural
