Film screening 1/29/15: The Throwaways

Thursday, January 29. Screenings at 6 pm and 8 pm

International House, U.C. Berkeley

The Throwaways is a timely and provocative look at the impact of mass incarceration and police brutality on black men in America. Told through the eyes of homeless ex-felon Ira McKinley, the film documents his struggle to bring positive changes to his community in inner-city Albany, NY. As he strives to give voice to the people on the streets fighting for survival, McKinley confronts the stigma of being formerly incarcerated.  More than an illumination of marginalized people in trouble, this film is a call to action, a narrative of engaging in the fight for justice.

Hi! I wish I could go, and cannot. Already registered at the Berlin and Beyond Film Festival Opening night that day. Hope there will be another screening. Best Inga
