Abstract:

Prejudice is a docu-drama that portrays stories of discrimination experienced by two young women from different backgrounds. Prejudice combines the use of actors and real people. In this exciting drama, officers of the Anti-Discrimination Board, union representatives and members of the legal profession play themselves. The first story concerns Jessica, a stills photographer, who becomes the first female photographer on a metropolitan newspaper. Jessica's outstanding talent quickly brings a promotion which causes resentment among her colleagues. A campaign of harassment ensues which forces Jessica to fight back. The other story is about Leticia, a Filipino nurse whose qualifications are disregarded by her employers. Despite her dedication and professionalism some patients object to being cared for 'by an Asian'. Leticia is constantly humiliated by the racist views aired by some of her colleagues. When her application for a promotion is dismissed, she decides it is time to take a stand. In a dramatic build up, each woman chooses to confront her crisis. One attempts to find a negotiated settlement; the other fights an intense court battle.
