Freedom Film Series

WHAT: Screening of the film APART plus a panel discussion after the film
WHERE: The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
WHEN: Thursday, May 26th at 6:00 pm.
 
From Academy Award® nominee Jennifer Redfearn (Best Documentary Short Sun Come Up), APART, filmed over 3 ½ years, follows three mothers who were caught between harsh drug sentencing and rising incarceration rates for women as part of America’s War on Drugs. The three women return home from prison and attempt to rebuild their lives after being separated from their children for years. Their stories overlap at a new reentry program for women run by an activist formerly incarcerated in the same prison. The award-winning film has been an official selection at multiple film festivals, including the Human Rights Watch Film Festival, HotDocs, Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, and the Cleveland International Film Festival.
 
We are excited to have remarkable panelists for a discussion following the film:
  • Tyra Patterson – Community Outreach Strategy Specialist, Ohio Justice and Policy Center
  • Malika Kidd – Director of Lutheran Metropolitan Ministries Chopping for Change Program, film subject
