On Saturday February 11 @ 10am at the Lexington Venue, please bring family and friends to a free screening of the film, “Beyond the Wall.”
Written and produced by Concord filmmaker, Jenny Phillips, it was filmed locally at the Billerica House of Correction/ Middlesex Jail. Jenny Phillips and the main character, Louie Diaz, will be present after the film for conversation. The film, in coordination with the “After Incarceration There’s Life” campaign, strives to break down common stereotypes and barriers, to stimulate new conversations about re-entry, and to support preparations of individuals for release. Middlesex County Sheriff, Peter Koutoujian, calls this documentary, “Riveting, gritty, powerful, and provocative-it is real life.”
In the spirit of thinking globally and acting locally, please join us in moving forward in conversation and action on criminal justice reform. These once incarcerated individuals are our neighbors, friends, and family who are in need of understanding and support.
First Parish Lexington joins First Parish, Bedford and Follen Community Church in sponsoring and supporting this event.
