John Brown's Body at San Quentin Prison

Thursday,  September 18, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.











Joe De Francesco

This is the story of nine men. What happened to them was extraordinary, transformational. All of the men were convicted of violent crimes, seven of them for murder. Something happened to them to change their lives - they learned to act. They learned to work together, and in the process of learning how to express a range of emotions, they began to discover themselves. The action takes place in California's San Quentin Prison. Director Joe De Francesco had full access to the men over a period of years. We learn who they were and what brought them to prison. We learn what they went through over the many months of the experience. We learn who they became and how they changed.

Director Joe De Francesco will host a Q&A after the screening.

Tickets are free to the community.  Please reserve at maximum two seats so that as many may attend as possible. If the screening is sold out, we will be happy to put your name on the waiting list.  Please advise us ahead of time if you have special seating requirements.  Thank you for your support!!
