A Day in the Night of Jonathan Mole

Top of page

A film for frank discussion of the causes and consequences of racial prejudice, particularly as it restricts a man's chances for employment. The film is in the form of a fantasy in which the worst can, and does, happen. In it a law is tested that, in effect, reserves the best jobs for persons of "pure" racial origin. Some argue for the law, some against; prejudice wins.
