Summary
Last Chance for Eden is a documentary about eight men and women discussing the issues of racism and sexism in the workplace. They examine the impact of society's stereotypes on their lives in the workplace, in their personal relationships and within their families and in their communities. In the course of their dialogue, they also explore the differences and similarities between racism and sexism - an area that has seldom been researched, but has heatedly become a very important issue needing to be understood and dealt with. The intention of the supplementary film study guide is to give the viewer an opportunity to test his or her facilitation skills. The CD-ROM contains a series of questions, based on the film, to challenge viewers to reexamine their thinking (and possible assumptions) about the material they are viewing, and the DVD contains the film, divided up into vignettes. Part 2 is a continuation of the conversation between eleven women and men about racism and sexism. Each of their stories is filled with history, courage and wisdom. For their voices and struggle remind us of how much further we still need to go. Part 3 features a biography of each person in the film. Filmmaker Lee Mun Wah chronicles their family experiences and how their life crises affected them and shaped their world
