Friday 10:30 am
INCARCERATING US is a feature-length documentary that exposes America’s prison problem and explores ways to unshackle the Land of the Free through vital criminal justice reforms. With 2.3 million people behind bars, the U.S. has the largest prison population in the history of the world. The film begins with a brief overview of U.S. prisons and the flawed policies that fueled unprecedented over-incarceration. In many cases, these laws exacerbate problems they were designed to solve. Through both empirical evidence and moving personal stories, we see the failures of two major policies: the War on Drugs and mandatory minimum sentences. INCARCERATING US tells the story of America’s broken criminal justice system through the eyes of those who created it, those who have suffered through it, and those who are fighting to change it. After decades of failures, now is the time to unshackle the Land of the Free.
Panel: "The Land of the Free?" Regan Hines, Vincent Vittorio, Adrienne Levy, Lyn Ulbricht
