Film has the power to transform entrenched narratives and catalyze social change. This year, the Human Rights Institute is hosting a documentary series, Storytelling for Social Change, to explore the medium and its potential for mobilizing action to advance human rights and social justice.
An Oscar-nominated documentary, TIME delves into the resilience and radical love necessary to prevail over the endless family separations resulting from America’s prison-industrial complex. It follows Sibil Fox Richardson, fighting for the release of her husband, Rob, who was serving a 60-year prison sentence for engaging in an armed bank robbery.
Believing that “to be free is to free others”, Fox and Rob Rich will answer questions after the screening and discuss their commitment to educating the public about sustainable solutions to America’s prison-industrial complex.
Dinner will be provided. This event is open to all current Georgetown Law students, faculty, staff, and outside guests.
