IN A WHOLE NEW WAY
(31 min) US


MONDAY 10/25, 8:40 PM (SESSION 11)

Director: Jonathan Fisher
Producers: George Carrano

Description:

Probation has evolved from a way to avoid prison to a sanction actually feeding mass incarceration. Equipped with a new form of artistic expression that has let them see themselves in a whole new way, hundreds of American people of color ensnared in this dominant criminal justice sanction set out to blaze a whole new way to reform. As in so many areas of American life, POC would pioneer an approach that many others could benefit from. By telling their heartwarming story, this half-hour documentary peels back the veil on the little-known nineteenth-century justice system innovation that would eventually spread through most of the world.

Biography:

Jonathan Fisher is the Associate Director of the nonprofit Seeing for Ourselves, which equips and trains marginalized Americans to take charge of their own public narrative. He worked with George Carrano on Project Lives: New York Public Housing Residents Photograph Their World, which went on to garner international acclaim, multiple awards, and prominent fans.

George Carrano had mounted an exhibition of such photography in the NYC gallery Denise Bibro Fine Art after encountering a similar exhibit in a London church basement. Carrano followed up this success by mounting an exhibit of the works of world-famous Magnum photojournalist Philip Jones Griffiths at the same venue. George founded with Jonathan Fisher the nonprofit Seeing for Ourselves —its mission is the use of participatory photography to empower marginalized Americans to take back their own public narrative in the interest of social justice.
