We're Alive

Sat 1/28 • 7:30PM PST

Billy Wilder Theater at the Hammer Museum

In 1974 three UCLA graduate students made the documentary We’re Alive as part of a class assignment focused on the experiences of incarcerated women. The filmmakers designed and led a Portapack video workshop at the California Institution for Women (CIW) in Chino, at the time the largest women’s prison in the United States.

Following the screening, the filmmakers join moderator Colby Lenz, CSW|Streisand Center Deputy Director of Policy and Community Research, and members of the California Coalition for Women Prisoners (CCWP) who experienced incarceration at CIW, in conversation.
