Here be dragons.

Caminante,
no hay puentes,
se hace puentes al andar.
– Gloria Anzaldúa

*PLEASE CIRCULATE WIDELY*

At Night I Fly: Images from New Folsom: Most of the prisoners at New Folsom, a maximum-security prison in Sacramento, California, are serving life sentences, and they must cope on a daily basis not only with the crimes they committed but also with prison’s punishing isolation, hopelessness, and violence. To that end, participants in New Folsom’s Arts in Correction Facilitation program learn to express themselves through poetry readings, gospel choirs, playing musical instruments, and discussion groups. Survival, however, is a deeply personal process that each must chart for himself. Eschewing a simple narration of redemption, Wenzler assembles a complex portrait of prison life. At Night I Fly won the Swedish Guldbagge Award in 2011 for best documentary

Film screening with the director, Michel Wenzer (Three Poems), and the producer, Tobias Janson (The Black Power Mixtape: 1967-1975). Following the film there will be a panel discussion involving prison educators, activists, students, faculty, and the public.
