Peace Campaign Alert!
Filmmaker Jenny Phillips screens her new documentary, Beyond the Wall; discussion follows with Producers/Directors Bestor Cram and Jenny Phillips and film subject Louie Diaz.
Donations will be accepted. Sponsored by MA Campaign for a U.S. Department of Peace, a Social Action project of First Parish in Concord.
Phillips’ work lays out the desperate situation of the flood of prisoners returning to our communities without guidance and support for transition to society. Set largely in Lowell and Lawrence, where once thriving textile mills have been replaced by poverty, crime and drug addiction, the film bears witness to personal stories of reentry, relapse, recovery and redemption. Phillips puts a human face on the social, economic, and emotional barriers encountered by former prisoners who are among our most discriminated citizens.
