Join us for an exclusive pre-screening of Lynn Novick’s College Behind Bars, a four-part documentary series that details the transformative impact of college in prison. After the screening we will hear from alumni of the Bard Prison Initiative (BPI), who will share their first-hand experience with the program, and how college gave them a second chance at success.

A special thanks to Skiff Mountain Films for providing an advance screening of the film.
