OAKLAND– We received such an overwhelming response that we are bringing the film back to the New Parkway. We hope you can join us for the film and a panel discussion and Q&A with the filmmaker and local community leaders. LIFE AFTER LIFE was filmed over 8 years and is told through the lens of three men and their families as they share their path to prison and their challenging journey home. A link to the trailer and a related TEDx are below, and you can learn more about the film and future screenings on our site at Tuesday, July 11, 2017 7:00 – 9:00 PM Location: The New Parkway Theatre, 474 24th Street, Oakland, CA 94607 Ticket Information: $12 General Admission, $10 Students and Seniors Buy tickets HERE or at the theatre. Facebook Event: LIFE AFTER LIFE Trailer 3 min Link to related TEDx talk Life After: Embracing our Common Humanity Synopsis: LIFE AFTER LIFE follows the stories of Harrison, Noel, and Chris as they return home from San Quentin State Prison. After spending most of their lives incarcerated, they are forced to reconcile their perception of themselves with a reality they are unprepared for. Each struggles to overcome personal demons and reconstruct their fractured lives. Grappling with day-to-day challenges and striving for success, they work to reconnect with family and provide for themselves for the first time in their adult lives. Told in an unadorned verite style, we experience the truth of their heartaches and triumphs. As their stories unfold over weeks, months and years, the precarious nature of freedom after incarceration in America is revealed. LIFE AFTER LIFE, a documentary film by Tamara Perkins, was supported in part by the California Documentary Project Grant. Find out more about this grant through California Humanities’ website HERE.
