16 BARS

LIVE Q&A WEDNESDAY, MAY 27

This inspiring music documentary featuring Grammy-Award winning artist Speech, of hip hop collective Arrested Development, offers a rare glimpse at the human stories — and songs — that are locked away in our nation’s jails and prisons.  With the U.S. incarcerating more of its citizens per capita than any other nation on the planet, the music of 16 Bars serves as a rare testimony to the raw and messy truth behind the criminal justice system‘s revolving door.

This program includes a LIVE filmmaker Q&A and extended panel discussion regarding the criminal justice system, and how it has been affected by the current COVID-19 crisis.

Free member tickets to this [email protected] title made available via direct email from [email protected] First come, first serve while tickets last.
