Life After Life Film + Healing Circle

October 4, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Please join us at Sol Collective in Sacramento for a screening of Life After Life, followed by a reception and healing circle. Life After Life -- which began in a yoga class in San Quentin -- was filmed and edited over 10 years and is told through the lens of three men and their families as they share their path to prison and their challenging journey home. You can watch a trailer, and see the filmmaker’s TEDx talk, at lifeafterlifemovie.com. ABOUT THE FILM Life After Life follows the stories of Harrison, Noel, and Chris as they return home from San Quentin State Prison. After spending most of their lives incarcerated, they are forced to reconcile their perception of themselves with a reality they are unprepared for. Each struggles to overcome personal demons and reconstruct their fractured lives. Grappling with day-to-day challenges and striving for success, they work to reconnect with family and provide for themselves for the first time in their adult lives. Told in an unadorned verite style, we experience the truth of their heartaches and triumphs. As their stories unfold over weeks, months and years, the precarious nature of freedom after incarceration in America is revealed.
