Wednesday I went to the Rayburn Correctional Center and screened the new Casting Stones documentary about the unprecedented 2 year undertaking of incarcerated offenders at Angola Prison and a local women's prison as they cooperated on a project, the play, The Life of Jesus Christ.
Angola once was a slave plantation in Louisiana and is now one of the world's largest and oldest operational prisons. Most offenders are serving sentences so long that they will die inside.
This film is so compelling and powerful. I do not think you could watch it and be unchanged in some way.
