“A Woman on the Outside” workshop, exhibition, film screening and panel

Growing up, Kristal watched nearly every man in her life disappear to prison. She channeled that struggle into keeping families connected, both as a social worker and with her van service that drives families to visit loved ones in far-off prisons. But when Kristal’s dad and brother return to Philly, her happiness meets the realization that release doesn’t always mean freedom.

Join us on April 1 for a film screening of “A Woman on the Outside,” a tender portrait of one family striving to love in the face of a system built to break them.

Directors Zara Katz and Lisa Riordan Seville and protagonist Kristal Bush will begin at 5pm with a Be The Media! workshop on “Participatory Design in Journalistic Process.” At 6:30pm there will be a brief opening reception for the exhibition “Women on the Outside.” Then at 7pm will be the film screening of “A Woman on the Outside” followed by a panel discussion that includes Jose Di Lenola and TeAna Taylor of RAPP.
