SCREENING OF "SAFETY ORANGE"
With filmmaker JIM DAVIS
New College Theater, 777 Valencia Street, S.F.
This film shows how the burgeoning criminal justice system has transformed our society. Join filmmaker Jim Davis for a showing of Safety Orange.
Safety Orange (60 minutes) ~ Jim Davis / Juliana Fredman
Safety Orange examines how the architecture of public schools has come to
mirror that of the prison over the last thirty years. The film outlines how
the expanding criminal justice system has spilled over from the prison into
society generally, for some as irrational fear of crime and persecution and
for others a very real experience of repression at the hands of the state.
The film features interviews with Ruth Wilson Gilmore, Rose Braz, Mike Davis
(City of Quartz), and Peter Linebaugh (The Many-Headed Hydra).
James Davis is a filmmaker who lives in New York. Juliana Fredman lives in New York
and this is her first film.
