Documentary Screening: Dramatic Escape
Thursday, July 7, 2016
Dramatic Escape transports viewers into the lives of a group of maximum security prisoners attempting to mount a stage production of A Few Good Men as a part of the Rehabilitation Through the Arts (RTA) program at Sing Sing Correctional Facility in Ossining, NY. The documentary gives viewers an intimate look at the dramatic process as it traces the steps from auditions through curtain call. Along the way, the men reveal their personal stories, their everyday struggles, and contemplate whether redemption is possible.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with members of the filmmaking team, as well as with former inmates who appear in the film.
