Visions of Abolition: From Critical Resistance to a New Way of Life

Unfortunately, this film is only available in the English language without Spanish subtitles.

This documentary was designed as a teaching tool to expand knowledge about the history of the prison industrial complex and the prison abolition movement in the United States.

Part I “Breaking down the Prison Industrial Complex” provides a critical exposé of mass incarceration, the war on drugs, and the connections between slavery, capitalism and the prison industrial complex (39 mins.)

Break: 5 minutes

Part II “Abolition: Past, Present & Future” moves beyond criticism, and offers an example of prison abolition in practice (48 mins).

This film features Angela Y. Davis, Ruth Wilson Gilmore, Susan Burton, Melissa Burch, Dylan Rodriguez, and Andrea Smith.

There will be a discussion following the screening.

Film Content/Trigger Warnings: State-sanctioned police violence, images of various individuals getting arrested, mentions of physical and sexual assault.
