In the past 40 years, the United States' prison population has quintupled. Despite accounting for 37 percent of the American population, black people and Hispanics make up 64 percent of the prison population and 75 percent of all inmates in federal penitentiaries. With more prisons than schools, urgent questions arise: Are these facilities really giving prisoners a chance to rehabilitate themselves? Are their living conditions humane? How does our society advance toward attaining equality? Featuring insights from social justice activist and attorney Bryan Stevenson, visual art by Hank Willis Thomas, and movement art by Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, the short film 'AM i A MAN' takes us on a gripping, heartbreaking and critically important journey through the harsh realities of a broken justice system.
This film was directed by Jon Boogz and Sol Guy. It is a co-production by DAIS, Movement Art Is (MAI) and Great Big Story. GET INVOLVED.
