Altonative Talk and Cinema: Free - Broken on all sides

Details

This is going to be a mini event with a market from 5.30, food on sale from about 6.30 and then the screening at 8pm so come on down and make a proper evening of it. Birbeck Law have been putting on some fantastic events lately with Angela Davis on Friday just gone.

Film screening, talk and discussion, with Birkbeck lecturer Eddie Bruce-Jones and the film's director Matthew Pillischer. This is a free event and the last in the series.

The USA has 25% of all the world’s prisoners and only 5% of the world’s population, and locks up a higher proportion of its racial and ethnic minorities than any other country (including South Africa at the height of apartheid). Matthew Pillischer’s hard-hitting documentary looks at racial inequities within the US criminal justice system and their devastating consequences.
