Three short films that "Seek Justice" to screen on 11/26 in Concord

[John Gfroerer, of Accompany Video Productions in Concord, will be screening three short films with a common theme this Monday, November 26 at Red River Theatres. He sent along this info below:]

Seek Justice
Monday, November 26 at 7pm
Red River Theatres, Concord, NH

In the past year Accompany Video Production has had the fortune to produce three short videos that call for justice, compassion and understanding.  They are all very different in the story they tell, but each speaks to the experience of people who are or have been incarcerated.  We are also beginning to explore producing a longer documentary that explores this issue.

Join us for a special showing of all three of these short videos and to share your thoughts on the issues they raise.  How do we find justice and compassion?  How do we find the message that leads to action and hope?

The Man Who Believed He Could Change Russia:
Mikhail Khodorkovsky


Produced for the Lantos Foundation, this video is about Russian dissident and Millionaire Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who has been in jail since 2003 for speaking out against Vladimir Putin and speaking up for freedom and democracy in Russia. (20 minutes)

Institutions: Close Them!

Produced for People First of New Hampshire, this video tells the stories of people who were confined in the Laconia State School, but now all live on their own in the community.  (18 minutes)

Prison Ministry

This video was produced for the New Hampshire Episcopal Diocese to raise funds for the Bishop Gene Robinson Endowment to fund the Chaplaincy at the New Hampshire Women's State Prison.  (8 minutes)
