This screening includes BEYOND WALLS SHORTS PROGRAM
- Date and time:
- Tues, Feb 20, 7 pm; Free but Ticketed
A collection of documentary shorts chronicling efforts toward prison abolition in the United States. Q&A to follow.
Have you ever considered a world without prisons? Beyond Walls examines that very question. Through five short films, the program sheds light on the human spirit that cannot be contained by the carceral system. From an introduction to the idea of abolition, to maintaining relationships with loved ones inside, to practical alternatives to incarceration, each film demonstrates an abolitionist imagination. Stick around afterwards for a community conversation discussing a world without prisons.
A Q&A with THEKINGTRILL (activist, program director of Focus Initiatives Ltd) and Jada Bee (activist, musician, founding member of People’s Market, core councilmember for BLM Btown), moderated by Seth Mutchler of Care Not Cages and IU Cinema, will follow the screening.
