Description:

Angola Do You Hear Us? tells the story of the ill-fated 2020 performance of Liza Jessie Peterson's acclaimed play, The Peculiar Patriot, at Angola, the Louisiana State Penitentiary, America’s largest prison-plantation. Directed by Cinque Northern, produced by Catherine Gund, Angola Do You Hear Us? examines what led to the shutdown of the play, the material that confronted a system, and how the impact of Liza’s visit rippled through Angola long after the record of her visit was erased by prison authorities.
