Movies That Matter Presents Incarcerating US

On February 21 at 4:30 pm join us for Movies That Matter presents, Incarcerating US. This documentary 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.  Through dramatic first-hand accounts, expert testimony, and shocking statistics, Incarcerating US asks fundamental questions about the prison system in America: What is the purpose of prison? Why did our prison population explode in the 1970s? What can make our justice system more just?

The film is part of the monthly Movies That Matter series examining a wide range of issues. Each screening is followed by a discussion.
