At Night I Fly: Images from New Folsom Prison

7:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

At Night I Fly: Images from New Folsom Prison not only offers a peek into one of California’s most maximum security prisons, but more importantly tells the story of the prison’s inmates who try to change their life’s perspective. They mainly do this through the Arts in Corrections program, which results in poetry readings, gospel choir, blues guitar playing, other forms of art. At Night I Fly shows the artistic and human journey these men take, as well as the need that fuels it, and the beauty and pain encountered along the way.

The film’s director, Michel Wenzer, and producer, Tobias Janson, will attend the screening. Following the film there will be a panel discussion involving prison educators, activists, students, faculty, and the public.

Co-sponsored by the Lang Office of Civic Engagement and Social Justice and the Office of Social Justice Initiatives.
