What if death broadcasted live became an entertainment? The excesses of reality television, violence, torture and humiliations dominate television programs worldwide. In the 1960s, the Milgram experiment showed that when told by a scientist to administer extreme electrical shocks to another person, 62% of individuals obeyed. Our team transposed this experience to the world of TV games. 80 participants to a game with abject rules. Who will follow Tania Young’s orders and inflict electrical shocks to a stranger? How many will dare to disobey? An extreme experience and deep reflection on the role of television today.
