There will be a second screening of Between the Bars on Saturday 13th May at 11.00 at the Finsbury Park Picturehouse.
Between the Bars traces the journey of North London choir, Vox Holloway, as its members tackle a new oratorio, The Sun Does Shine, based on the true story of an innocent man who spent 30 years on Death Row in Alabama. The film explores the challenges posed when art tackles complex social issues such as capital punishment, racial injustice and long term imprisonment.
Made in collaboration with the UK Prison Reform Trust and Arts Council England.
Doors open at 10.45am and we will start promptly at 11am.
The screening of the film will be followed by drinks in the Picturehouse Members’ Bar from 12pm to 1.30pm. To avoid long queues at the bar we will be selling drinks tokens before the film for £5 each using our own card machine. House white/red (125ml), cans of Camden Hells/Ale, pints of Pepsi/Pepsi Max/7UP and bottles of Corona & Erdinger.
We invite you to make a donation to cover the additional costs of hiring the cinema and to help cover our further work with long-term prisoners in the UK. Working with the national Prison Radio Association, we are developing a series of radio programmes, based on The Sun Does Shine, and involving prisoners and former prisoners, that will be streamed into prisons later this year.
