Grassroots House, 2022 Blake Street, Berkeley
Blake Street is 7 blocks south of Downtown Berkeley BART. Grassroots House is between Shattuck and Milvia Streets.
The filmmakers worked on a hip-hop radio program in rural Virginia, and all their correspondence came from a supermax prison. This movie looks at the racial and cultural conflict of prisons and their locations, and the connection between human rights abuses at American prisons and Abu Ghraib.
