In this short clip of an American Film Institute interview with Dustin Hoffman, he reflects on the memory of his realisation that he was, like all of us, culturally ‘brainwashed’. I love this clip not only because he speaks about it at all (and on record), but also because he obviously feels it so deeply. This is the answer to prejudice, I think; to feel the effects and experiences of the (perceived) ‘Other’.
While I could discuss the merits of this video for hours, it’s quite late, and no need; Hoffman’s soul speaks very gently and clearly for itself.
I feel privileged to have seen this today – found at TheMarySue.
