Long-lost loved ones lock eyes
Look Me In The Eye, SBS, Wednesday, September 6 at 8.30pm
MORE than three million Australians are estranged from their loved ones. Look Me In the Eye, a new reality series, takes a radical approach to reconciliation.
The social experiment explores what happens when two estranged people come face-to-face, to use only eye contact to express themselves.
One is the person seeking to reconnect with someone they have become estranged from; the other is the person they want to reconnect with. Sitting face-to-face, they look each other in the eye for at least five minutes, without speaking.
The two individuals are then given time alone in separate rooms where they deliberate on whether they want to reconnect with the other person – or choose to leave without seeing them again.
