[2016, 84 MINUTES, NR)

The Crocker is proud to present four fresh documentaries that share some of the diverse stories and compelling individuals who make up our state. Each screening will be introduced by John Lightfoot of California Humanities, the grant-making nonprofit that helped fund these films through its California Documentary Project. A Q&A with the filmmakers or subjects will follow some screenings.

Through Proposition 36, California amended its “Three Strikes” law — one of the most notorious sentencing policies in the country. This marked the first time in U.S. history that citizens voted to shorten sentences of those currently incarcerated. Within days, the reintegration of thousands of “lifers” was underway. The Return , directed by Kelly Duane de la Vega and Katie Galloway, examines this unprecedented reform through the eyes of those on the front lines — prisoners suddenly freed, families turned upside down, re-entry providers trying to navigate the transitions, and attorneys and judges wrestling with an untested law.
