"It's Criminal" Film Screening

  • Loew Auditorium, Black Family Visual Arts Center 22 Lebanon Street Hanover, NH, 03755 United States (map)

Poignant and personal, local filmmaker Signe Taylor’s moving documentary shares the life-changing journeys of incarcerated women and Dartmouth students in the Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies class, “Telling My Story,” which epitomizes the goals of experiential learning.

Over the course of ten weeks, the students and inmates work together to write and perform an original play that explores the often painful and troubled paths that landed the women behind bars, and also shares some of their fragile visions for the future. It's a transformational movie that delves into privilege, poverty and injustice and asks viewers to think about who is in prison and why.

Discussion follows with director Signe Taylor, Prof. Ivy Schweitzer, Prof. Pati Hernandez and special guests.

Cost: $5 to $8
