Films Changing the World: Must-see docs exploring new issues and transforming the way we see the world.

One of the best and most important documentaries of 2016, Toronto native Brett Story’s The Prison in Twelve Landscapes is a sharp and imaginative deconstruction of America’s prison-industrial complex that fixes its gaze not on the prison themselves but the economic and personal links to penitentiaries, charting the invisible links of the system and society. From a mining town in Kentucky dependent on a federal jail for employment, to a business that supplies prison-approved care packages to inmates and a tour through Quicken Loans corporate headquarters—12 vignettes together brilliantly compose a portrait of the inextricable bonds between mass incarceration and American life. http://ow.ly/ttDJ308SUZw

Director Brett Story will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
