Miami - "Life After Life" and Campaign for Criminal Justice Reform

January 26, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
@ 9:00 pm

Join the ACLU of Florida and the Campaign for Criminal Justice Reform on Saturday, January 26, in Miami Lakes for a free viewing of the documentary film "Life After Life," produced by Tamara Perkins, and an engaging community discussion on criminal justice reform.

The documentary follows 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. "Life After Life" is unique in its access, style and focus, with the participants playing a significant role in documenting and telling their own stories. Told in an unadorned vérité style, we experience the precarious nature of freedom after incarceration in America.

"Life After Life" began in 2007 when the participants in the film approached Tamara Perkins to tell their story. As members of Perkins' yoga class at San Quentin State Prison and with Perkins' own experience as a crime survivor and justice impacted family member they felt she could facilitate an insider's perspective. The film is praised by both the community at large and justice impacted individuals, family members and loved ones.

Seating is limited, so RSVP today! See you there!
