‘Attica’ Free Screening & Discussion at the Crandell Theatre, Jan 30

The Crandell Theatre presents the riveting 2021 documentary Attica by Emmy® winning director Stanley Nelson and co-director Traci Curry, about the 1971 uprising at the Attica Correctional Facility. The screening is followed by a post-film discussion with Daniel L. Meyers, the attorney who litigated the “Attica Massacre” for over 25 years, his step-son Jared Reinmuth, an author and co-writer of the graphic memoir, Big Black: Stand at Attica, Jose Pineda III, the executive director of After Incarceration, a Hudson Valley-based restorative justice nonprofit project, and Laurie Scott, director of ReEntry Columbia.

Attica was nominated for three Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards including Best Historical or Biographical Documentary, Best Documentary Feature, and Best Director. It was also named Official Selection at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival.

The film chronicles the infamous 1971 prison rebellion, one of the bloodiest civil rights confrontations in American history, which was initiated by prisoners demanding better living conditions. The uprising lasted for five days and left 39 people dead. The documentary is an unnervingly vivid investigation that sheds new light on the enduring violence and racism of the prison system. Survivors, observers, and expert government officials recount the violent five-day standoff between mostly Black and Latino inmates and law enforcement that gripped America then, and the film highlights the urgent, ongoing need for reform 50 years later. The panel discussion will further elaborate on the film, the historic event, and the current state of prison reform from multiple perspectives.
