How does a 16-year-old evolve into a criminal? This documentary explores race, class, education, and the prison system by examining a bank robbery committed by Texas high-school students. Director Darius Clark Monroe’s film interweaves suspenseful reenactment footage with candid interviews from people involved in every angle of the crime. The twist? The filmmaker himself was involved in the robbery. Monroe will participate in a discussion after the film local panelists involved in criminal justice reform.
The event is co-sponsored by the Austin/Travis County Reentry Roundtable and Grassroots Leadership. More information and tickets online.
