Screening: Zero Percent (2010, USA, 107 min.)
Sunday, September 18, 2011, 6–9 pm
Director Tim Skousen offers a rare glimpse inside the notorious Sing Sing Correctional Facility, where men are finding hope and transformation through the Hudson Link program, one of the only college-degree-granting programs in New York’s Department of Corrections. The program, which is sponsored through individual donations, is rigorous. While 60 percent of the nation’s convicts fall into recidivism once released, none of the Hudson Link graduates have returned to prison. Instead, these men return home with a strong desire to serve the communities that they formerly preyed upon.
