Event Details

This special event is jointly sponsored by:

United States Attorney’s Office, Eastern Division 

Lancaster County Reentry Management Organization (RMO)

Millersville University

Pull of Gravity is a film that tells the stories of three men, each attempting to make his way along the challenging continuum of reentry. Filmmaker, co-director and Lancaster native, El Sawyer brings both a keen ear and eye to this story, having traveled this path himself. He realized that the journey is misunderstood, even by those whose hearts and minds lean sympathetically. With colleague and co-director Jon Kaufman, Sawyer turned to the art of storytelling, captured on film, to debunk perceptions and replace ignorance with fact. Together Sawyer and Kaufman have created an intimate portrait of three lives, offering compelling insights that can help shape responses from family members, parole officers, law enforcement officials, and the social networks upon which reentry is dependent; when viewed by ex offenders, the film can offer hope tempered by a dose of unvarnished experience. 

There will be two screenings:

11:00AM - 1:00PM

The film will be followed by a speakers’ panel featuring representatives from the US Attorney’s Office, Eastern District, and successful Returning Citizens.

There will also be a Reentry Services "Expo" where agencies that offer programs and services for returning citizens and their families will have display tables with literature about their services, and organization staff to talk with.

PLEASE NOTE: the documentary contains strong and graphic language, not suitable for children.  

“When people hear the term “criminal justice,” thoughts of police arrests, prosecutors, defense attorneys, jury trials and prison often come to mind. As law enforcement agencies continue to do more with less in these difficult economic times, it has become increasingly clear that we need to focus on programs that help prevent crime and that will help past offenders reintegrate into our communities as productive citizens. While incarceration serves an important societal goal of keeping dangerous offenders off the streets, the reality is that most offenders eventually return to the community. Without a comprehensive plan which addresses crime prevention and reentry issues, the cyclical nature of crime by repeat offenders will continue.”
