About this event

The Justice on Trial Film Festival speaks to the challenges of people caught up in the judicial system. They know only too well the pain and injustice—the solitary confinement, the stop-and-frisk humiliations, the selective prosecutions with bad plea bargains, and the unreasonably long sentences that they suffer. They are painfully familiar with the school-to-prison pipeline that puts so many young people, particularly those of color, at risk. But their voices are often unheard beyond their own communities. The film festival creates an opportunity to project their voices to a world deafened by the negative images and stereotypes presented by the media.

***The Film Festival is free and open to the public. Register by October 21st to reserve your lunch.***

The Justice on Trial Film Festival will be held in person at Loyola Marymount University from 11:00—4:30PM on Saturday, October 29th and Sunday, October 30th. For complete schedule breakdown, please visit our website: https://justiceontrialfilmfestival.net/.

Featuring the Following Films and More!

WINN (Dir: Joseph East & Erica Tanamachi)

A formerly incarcerated woman turned activist fights to legally end the shackling of incarcerated pregnant people in Georgia.

Searching for Justice (Prod: Mike Fritz & Frank Carlson [PBS])

Focuses on the challenges individuals face after incarceration — challenges made more difficult by the Covid-19 pandemic — from reconnecting with family, to finding work and housing, to staying out of prison or jail.

The Letter Room (Dir: Elvira Lind)

When a kind-hearted prison officer (Oscar Isaac) is transferred to the letter room, he soon gets involved in an inmate's personal affairs...

Suppressed and Sabotaged (Dir: Robert Greenwald [Brave New Films])

Sheds light on how States all across the country have GOP-backed passed voter suppression laws. These laws are targeted, and they deliberately sabotage the voting methods of people of color.
