Yoga Behind Bars Community Screening of The Return
Aug 30, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm| FREE
Join the Yoga Behind Bars (YBB) Race and Social Justice Committee at the Collab August 30th for a special movie night! We’ll be screening The Return, a documentary that aired on PBS’s P.O.V. series this fall. Watch the trailer here, and find more information below.
In 2012, California amended its “Three Strikes” law — one of the harshest criminal sentencing policies in the country. The passage of Prop. 36 marked the first time in U.S. history that citizens voted to shorten sentences of those currently incarcerated. Within days, the reintegration of thousands of “lifers” was underway. The Return examines this unprecedented reform through the eyes of those on the front lines — prisoners suddenly freed, families turned upside down, reentry providers helping navigate complex transitions and attorneys and judges wrestling with an untested law. At a moment of reckoning on mass incarceration, what can California’s experiment teach the nation? A co-production of American Documentary | POV and ITVS. A co-presentation with the National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC). Official Selection of the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.
About the Collab:
Our mission at the Hillman City Collaboratory, or “the collab” for short, is to become an instrument of transformation that provides space and programs specifically designed to create community and equip change-makers. The Collaboratory is housed in a multi-use complex that incorporates four unique spaces: the mixing chamber, the coworking office, the learning kitchen, and the community park & garden.
RSVP for the event by 8/15.
