Cruel and Unusual is a 2006 documentary film that tells the individual stories of five transgender women living and surviving in the US prison system. The film provides a glimpse into the ways in which trans and gender non-conforming people are targeted and criminalized by the prison industrial complex, and reveals the many ways these individuals and their communities are directly affected by intersecting oppressions on multiple levels.
The film will start promptly at 2pm. Please join us for a discussion following the film.
Please bring a $5 donation for the Write to Win Collective or stamps to send letters to prisoners. No one will be turned away for a lack of funds.
