Saturday, Jan. 12

Movies That Matter Beacon will screen the docmentary film Survivors Guide To Prison on Saturday, Jan. 12 at 7:30 PM at the First Presbyterian Church, 50 Liberty Street, Beacon. This film is a chilling exposé of U.S. criminal justice, told through the eyes  of two innocent men who spent decades facing unimaginable brutality for murders they did not commit. Supported by gripping testimony from inmates, guards, staff, cops, analysts, lawyers and reformers, Survivors Guide advocates evolving beyond the failed “prison punishment model”  toward the dramatic moving programs proven to create public safety.
Guest Speaker is Jeffrey Deskovic, internationally recognized wrongful conviction expert and founder of The Jeffrey Deskovic  Foundation, which has freed 7 wrongfully convicted people. 

Admission is free.
