Criminal Justice Education Series: "Mass Incarceration and Life After Reentry"
A screening of the documentary film "Life after Life," directed by Tamara Perkins, followed by a panel discussion.
"Life After Life" follows the stories of Harrison, Noel and Chris as they return home from San Quentin State Prison. After spending most of their lives incarcerated, they are forced to reconcile their perception of themselves with a reality they are unprepared for.
Each struggles to overcome personal demons and reconstruct their fractured lives. Grappling with day-to-day challenges and striving for success, they work to reconnect with family and provide for themselves for the first time in their adult lives.
John Raphling of Human Rights Watch calls "Life after Life" a "really powerful film... [It] presents such a clear message about the power of the human spirit."
