Free Film Screening: In An Ideal World

At the Soledad Prison in California, a warden, a white prisoner convicted of murder and a black former gang member struggle to move beyond the stark reality of America’s locked down racial order. Challenged for the first time by a U.S. Supreme Court desegregation ruling and a novel mixed-race program, their stories reveal the hope and the hidden risks of transformative change, and the institutional nature of racial hierarchies.
