"Life on Parole" Film Screening
The Institute for Municipal and Regional Policy (IMRP) at Central Connecticut State University presents the screening of the film Life on Parole.
Life on Parole, produced in Connecticut with the cooperation of the Department of Corrections and in collaboration with the New York Times and PBS Frontline, follows several former prisoners released on parole, showing in stark detail the punitive rules under which they live. For more than a year, Frontline and The New York Times followed newly released prisoners as they tried to find homes and jobs, reconnect with loved ones and avoid temptation, sometimes discovering that the system created to help them can also hold them back.
A panel of one or two special guests (a former parolee, a parole officer, one of the film makers, or others) will join us for the conversation immediately following the film. Registration is required.
