SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE INCARCERATED – a short documentary film screening and discussion

February 25, 2016 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
115 Empire Street


“I was prepared to go to prison for what I had done. I was not prepared for what it would do to my children”
Sons and Daughters of the Incarcerated will introduce Tre, a 13 year old boy trying to navigate an adult world. His father is serving 15 years for armed robbery. Tre is struggling to figure out who he is in a community where masculinity is often definted by criminal behavior. He and his dad have an agreement: Tre will stop fighting and get his grades up if his dad will do the same in order to be able to return home sooner. Will Tre heed his father’s words, not his example, and escape the statistics that riddle his community?
Join us Thursday, Feb. 25th at AS220 (115 Empire St) for a screening of the film followed by a discussion with the director, Denali Tiller.
Reception at 6:00PM
Screening starts at 6:30PM
