Indie Memphis says
'A Kind of Order' follows a warden, a white separatist and a black gangbanger for seven years as they struggle to move beyond the stark reality of America's prison racial order. Challenged for the first time by a U.S. Supreme Court desegregation ruling and a novel multi-race program, their stories reveal the institutional nature of racial hierarchies and the hope and hidden risks of transformative change.

'A Kind of Order' draws people past fear to experience prison directly, to bear witness to the impact of incarceration policies, and to invite scrutiny about the role of race and power in our "locked down" society, where one in 99 Americans spends time behind bars.

ABOUT THE ATTENDING FILMMAKER: Noel Schwerin has written, produced and directed award-winning films, including two national PBS primetime specials: Bloodlines, which was used by the U.S. Senate, the National Association of Women Judges and the Federal Judicial Center, winning top honors at the National Association of Science Writers and the Association of Women in Communications; and the two-hour A Question of Genes, which won a special citation in CPB’s Report on Public Broadcasting and The Needs of Minority and Diverse Audiences.
