Southern Circuit—Tour of Independent Filmmakers will screen Concrete, Steel & Paint, a film about crime, restoration, and healing by Cindy Burstein and Tony Heriza at various venues throughout Alabama in September.
This complex story raises important questions about crime, justice, and reconciliation and dramatically illustrates how art can facilitate dialogue about difficult issues.
When men in a Pennsylvania state prison join with victims of crime to create a mural about healing, their views on punishment, remorse, and forgiveness collide. Finding consensus is not easy, but as the participants move through the creative process, mistrust gives way to surprising moments of human contact and common purpose.
Attend a screening, meet co-director Cindy Burstein, and join in the conversation about art, prison, healing, and justice.
