Event Details

SFPL’s The Bridge at Main and The Reentry Council of San Francisco invite you to join us for a film series exploring themes of reentry, juvenile and criminal justice. Each screening will be followed by a panel discussion hosted by a local community organization.

The first film in the series, Girl Trouble (Independent Lens/PBS/KQED) is a powerful documentary that follows three teenage girls over a period of 5 years as they navigate the San Francisco Juvenile Justice System.

Bay Area filmmakers Lexi Leban and Lidia Szajko document the girls remarkable successes and heartbreaking setbacks over a four-year period, their daily struggles with poverty, violence, public defenders and homelessness, and expose a system that fails to end the cycle of incarceration.

The panel discussion will be led by Shanell Williams, Director of Research and Organizing at the Center for Young Women’s Development; Dr. Gena Castro Rodriquez, Chief of Victim Services in the Office of District Attorney George Gascón; and Keenia Williams from the Reentry Council of San Francisco.​
