Imagining Change Film and Dialogue Series: “The Released”
Welcome remarks and facilitation by Victoria Marks, chair of Disability Studies and Beth Ribet, Director and Co-founder of Repair. The screening of “The Released” will be followed by conversation by the audience.
About the film: “The Released”, produced by Miri Navasky and Karen O’Conner for PBS Frontline, focuses on the cyclical release and re-incarceration of people with mental disabilities in the U.S (runtime 54 minutes).
“Imagining Change: Film and Dialogue About Disability, Racism, Violence, Gender and Power” is a virtual series focused on issues related to disability, race and racism, healthcare, violence, policing and incarceration, economic justice, law and policy, gender and sexual politics, protest, and social change. As we continue to navigate urgent public health, racial and economic challenges, we recognize a continuing need for education and dialogue about vital social questions. This collaboration is between Repair, the Saks Institute for Mental Health Law, Policy & Ethics at USC Gould School of Law, and UCLA Disability Studies.
