Solitary (2016) – [framed] Documentary Film Series


Date & Time: 
Apr 6 2017 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm

As part of our [framed] documentary series, Next Stage Arts
presents "Solitary" (2016) —
2017 Independent Spirit Award Nominee.

 A daring exploration of the lives of inmates and corrections
officers in one of America’s most notorious supermax prisons, built to hold
inmates in 8×10 cells, 23-hours a day, for months, years, and sometimes
decades. With unprecedented access, the film captures a complex, unexpected and
deeply moving portrait of life inside. (1h 30)

Presented by filmmaker Kristi Jacobson. Screening will be
followed by a Q&A.

The films in the [framed] series have recently played on the
festival circuit around the world including Sundance and Tribeca, and all have
been recognized with festival honors. The eclectic lineup explores a wide range
of issues including gender, incarceration, beauty, otherness, greed, and the
role of family and tradition.

Curator Nancy Schafer worked for the iconic Tribeca Film
Festival for 11 years, where she was most recently the festival’s executive
director. Schafer and Next Stage co-founder Billy Straus met at the Camden
International Film Festival in 2015 where Schafer serves on the advisory board,
and the idea of programming a documentary series for Next Stage was born.
