RYSE Justice Reelz presents:
Alone - a short documentary that toggles between New York City and Santa Cruz, where young people tell their own stories of isolation and how the justice system can do better.
The Box - a short animation telling the story of Ismael "Izzy" Nazario and the time he spent in solitary confinement in New York City's Rikers Island jail. It features music from Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def.
After the screening, we will have a Q & A session with Daffodil Altan, producer and director of Alone, and Manuel Quinonez, a youth advocate and young person who has firsthand experience of the impact of solitary confinement in California’s Division of Juvenile Justice.
