Earlier I wrote about a website I made for a documentary on the Hutto Detention facility in Taylor, Texas, which houses immigrant children and their families in what was once a medium-security prison. The documentary was recently revamped and completed, and was accepted into the yearly South by Southwest film and music festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas.
I am looking forward to the documentary, which chronicles a very troubling miscarriage of justice. From the website:
Detention of immigrant children in a former medium-security prison in Texas leads to controversy when three activist attorneys discover troubling conditions at the facility. This compelling documentary film explores the role – and limits – of community activism, and considers how American rights and values apply to the least powerful among us.
There will be three screenings, and I encourage you to attend:
Mon March 16, 11 am, Alamo Ritz
Wed March 18, 7 pm, Alamo Lamar
Fri March 20, 11 am, Paramount
Check out the screening schedule on the website for more information.
