A Documentary Film About the Angola 3
“IN THE LAND OF THE FREE...”
3 men, 100 years in solitary confinement. In America. Today.
Join us for an update on the case and discussion with Marina Drummer from the International Coalition to Free the Angola 3.
Herman Wallace, Albert Woodfox and Robert King spent almost a century between them in solitary confinement in Angola, the Louisiana State penitentiary. They are known as the Angola 3. Herman and Albert are still in solitary confinement after thirty seven years.
In the Land of the Free... is a documentary feature narrated by Samuel L Jackson that examines the story of these extraordinary men who were targeted by the prison authorities for being members of the Black Panther Party and because they fought against the terrible conditions and systematic sexual slavery that was rife in the prison.
The film is directed by Vadim Jean; produced by Gold Circle Films (My Big Fat Greek Wedding). 2010, 84 min.
Sponsored by the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism)
