Watch the film any time before the discussion–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after! Combining archival footage with testimony from activists and scholars, director Ava DuVernay’s examination of the U.S. prison system looks at how the country’s history of racial inequality drives the high rate of incarceration in America. This piercing, Oscar-nominated film won Best Documentary at the Emmys, the BAFTAs and the NAACP Image Awards. Village member Mel Washburn will host a discussion of the film via Zoom this Saturday at 3:00 PM.
