It's Criminal highlights the economic and social inequities that divide the United States and offers a vision of how separated communities can learn to speak to each other. Poignant and personal, the 80-minute feature documentary shares the life-changing journeys of incarcerated women and Dartmouth College students working 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.
This is a transformational movie that delves into privilege, poverty and injustice and asks viewers to think about who is in prison and why.
After the film there will be a panel discussion featuring:
• Ivy Schweitzer (co-producer and English professor at Dartmouth)
• Pati Hernandez (documentary advisor and adjunct professor at Dartmouth)
• Charlotte Rankin (former inmate, participant in the film)
