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 next film in the series, The Throwaways, is sponsored by the Reentry Council of San Francisco and The Bridge at Main. Following the film there will be a panel discussion and Q&A featuring members of community-based organizations in the Bay Area.

The Throwaways is a personal exploration of the devastating impact of police brutality and mass incarceration on the black community told through the eyes of formerly incarcerated activist filmmaker Ira McKinley. With rawness, urgency and power, this award-winning documentary film speaks directly to the national movement rising up to fight back against a wave of police killings of black people in America.

Timely and provocative, The Throwaways is more than just an illumination of marginalized people at their weakest moments; it is a call to action, a story of directly engaging in the fight for justice.

“The Throwaways courageously explores the most pressing racial justice issue of our time: the mass incarceration and racial profiling of poor people of color.” -Michelle Alexander, Author of The New Jim Crow
