The Prison In Twelve Landscapes
June 25, 2017 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Please join us for a Screening + Pop Up Panel presented by critical resistance:
More people are imprisoned in the United States at this moment than in any other time or place in history, yet the prison itself has never felt further away or more out of sight. The Prison in Twelve Landscapes is a film about the prison in which we never see a penitentiary. Instead, the film unfolds as a cinematic journey through a series of landscapes across the USA where prisons affect lives, from a California mountainside where female prisoners fight raging wildfires, to a Bronx warehouse full of goods destined for the state correctional system, to an Appalachian coal town betting its future on the promise of prison jobs.
Critical Resistance Los Angeles is hosting a screening of the film followed by a pop-up panel of local organizers who are fighting for a Los Angeles free of policing, imprisonment and displacement: Pete White (Los Angeles Community Action Network), Laura Pulido (Chicana Studies Author and Professor), a member of Defend Boyle Heights, Amber-Rose Howard (Californians United for a Responsible Budget), Xela de la X (Cihuatl CE of Ovarian Psycos Bicycle Brigade; Founders of autonomous community organizing space in BH – La Conxa and active members of the coalition DBH)
