Don't miss our screening of the documentary film about the infamous Eastern State Penitentiary and its impact on America's prison system.
"Living Behind the Walls" is a chilling exploration of one of America's most notorious prisons. It opened its doors in 1829 and operated for 142 years, closing in 1972. This film explores how the revolutionary experiment of solitary confinement was nothing more than psychological torture and how the desire to rehabilitate criminals gave way to financial realities not unlike those facing our modern day prison system.
We'll be showing it at 9 PM on Tuesday in the Frist West TV Lounge. Bring friends!
