Storyline

This film takes a powerful and in-depth look at a California theater company called Poetic Justice Project, which is comprised of formerly incarcerated writers, artists, musicians and actors who perform original plays that examine the topics of crime, punishment and redemption. Begun in 2009 by Deborah Tobola, former Managing Director of Arts in Corrections at a California prison, Poetic Justice Project provides a powerful opportunity for formerly incarcerated individuals to find their way back into society through the arts, and helps bring greater understanding and important information about prison life to the general population.

Excellent Work

I was pleased to watch this short film, one that speaks volumes about forgiviness, and redemption. These people have walked away from some hard places to shine a ray of hope. One that so many others seem to over look. Our society seems to think getting tough on crime will cure. But putting people in the dark only serves to turns faces and souls dark with rage, a rage that spills out engendered upon release. But the Poetic Justice Project sets an example of what can happen when the same people are instead shown kindness. That small sip of life blossomed into a wonderful play, and has echoed to plant seeds in many others in need of such a message. Imagine what good could be cultivated if more were done to reach out to these men and woman, that sit day after day alone, with out even the gift of touch, resentful, basically abused children grown up. Imagine if hope such as The Poetic Justice project were available to everyone of these disconnected individuals. That a message of you are worth while were fed to them, instead of the you will be back stream of thought so pervasive in the prison culture. I am grateful as a former inmate, ( AKA Convict) to see this sort of work being done. I say it is about time. Everyone is worth while in some way, you only need look at this film to see the truth in that. Darren Glenn Deichen
