We Are Witnesses- Chicago
United States, 22 min., English
Free Community Screening: “The stories in “We Are Witnesses: Chicago are not meant to soothe, but rather to agitate, to poke, and prod our assumptions, to force us to wrangle with the way justice looks in Chicago. With candor and directness, these men and women speak to who we are as a city and who we are as a nation. They speak of forgiveness and of second chances. They speak of anguish alongside joy. They speak of vengeance pitted against forebearance. In their stories, they each in their own way pose the question: What is justice? It is a question we all need to contemplate.” Alex Kotlowitz
