Youth canvasser tries to spread the word about the prison industry to her peers on a basketball court
Books Not Bars
Director: Mark Landsman
This short documentary focuses on the growth of the prison industrial complex in the U.S. through the eyes of the youth who are working to reverse the trend. The title refers to the claim that adolescents are four to five times more likely to go to prison than be educated. A great film for high school classroom use, Book Not Bars provides concrete examples of the positive results of activism.
