On the occasion of the RJ WEEK 2017, Annett Zupke (member of the EFRJ who subtitled ‘A Conversation‘ in German) and her colleague Kirstin Drenkhahn will screen the film ‘The pain is still raw’ about an RJ-oriented programme in a maximum security prison in the USA.
Two screenings will take place at the Freie Universitaet Berlin (Germany) on Thursday 23 November:
1.During the course “Kriminologie” (11:15-12:45) at the Department of Law, room 3302, Boltzmannstr. 3, 14195 Berlin and
2.During the course “Einführung ins Strafrecht I” (16:15-17:45) Henry-Ford-Bau, Max-Kade-Auditorium, Garystr. 35, 14195 Berlin
This 30-minute documentary tells the story of a treatment program that includes three days of RJ. In those three days, everyone is sharing in a talking circle including prisoners, persons from the outside who have been victimised by violent crime and other members of the community. The setting is Green Bay Correctional Institution, a maximum security prison for adult male convicts in Wisconsin/USA. By showing scenes from the talking circle and giving a voice to participants from the inside and the outside, the film makes a strong case for opening the restricted place of the penitentiary to RJ ideas and practices.
