Concrete, Steel, and Paint
Site: UNC-G: Stone 186
Join us for the documentary film screening of Concrete, Steel, and Paint, a film that tells the story of men in a Pennsylvania state prison join with victims of crime to create a mural about healing, their views on punishment, remorse, and forgiveness collide. Finding consensus is not easy – but as the participants move through the creative process, mistrust gives way to surprising moments of human contact and common purpose.
Following the film we will have a conversation about restorative justice, crime and reconciliation, and how art can facilitate dialogue about difficult issues. The discussion will be facilitated by Amy Knorr and Sarah Roth Shank, who bring years of experience working in restorative justice practices, and more recently, related to this film.
