The Bail Trap: American Ransom

THE BAIL TRAP: AMERICAN RANSOM

Money bail is one of the main causes of mass incarceration in the United States. Yet, few people know what the money bail system is, let alone how it all works or why we need to do away with it.

That’s why Brave New Films’ has produced a short film compilation about America’s broken bail system: The Bail Trap: American Ransom. This ongoing short-film series includes: Breaking Down Bail – unpacking the myths and the history of bail; Tai’s Story: College or Bail? – a documentary about a young woman and the $100,000 price-tag put on her freedom; Deal with the Devil – a cautionary film about the dangers of plea deals; How Much is Your Freedom Worth? – a compilation of spoken-word poetry performed by artists who have been formerly incarcerated; and Lessons for the Nation: New Jersey’s Cash Bail Overhaul – a success story about New Jersey’s historic money bail reform which has led to a near 20% decline in the state’s pretrial incarceration rate.

The reality is that 70% of people in jail are there for one reason: living in poverty. Low-income Americans are sitting in jails for days, months, and even years simply because they can’t afford to pay high bail amounts. All the while, private companies are profiting in the billions each year. This must end. Sign up below to screen any portion or all of The Bail Trap: American Ransom in your education communities.

Together, let’s take action against money bail and help end mass incarceration!

12/14/2018: Second Friday Film Series

20 years since Eve Ensler’s play The Vagina Monologues shattered taboos, the stakes could not be higher. V-Day is a movement that grew out of the untold stories of women. We believe women. We believe in their right to tell their stories and we believe their stories need to be heard. Nothing is more powerful. The Vagina Monologues gave birth to V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against all women and girls. With creativity and determination, V-activists around the world tirelessly work to end rape, harassment, battery, incest, female genital mutilation, and sex slavery.

10/11/2018: El Norte Updated Information

Our discussion panel will include Jose (first language Spanish), Silveria (first language Mam), Suzanne & Phil (first language English).  All 4 speak Spanish as a common language for translation purposes between panel members or with the audience.

The panel met last night and decided that it was best to have short discussion after Act I  – Guatemala, Act II Mexico and then Act III USA.   Some people don’t like to interrupt a movie that way, but there are 3 distinct parts to this powerful and poetic film.  We decided to go with that format.

Feel free to invite any Mexican or Guatemalan friends with the confidence that they can participate.  Act I of the movie is entirely in Spanish and Quiche, but there are English subtitles throughout the film.

For those who grew up with English in the USA, the movie offers a powerful, immersion experience in “point of view.”  You see and experience first Guatemala, then Mexico, then the USA from another cultural and economic point of view.  When you are an immigrant house waiter or domestic worker without documents, the United States and its citizens look somewhat different.

Here is part of the film summary from their site:

Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives is a compelling documentary exploring the under-reported environmental impacts of war and preparations for war. The film confronts the immensely broad ecological and human ramifications of everything from technological development and natural resource exhaustion to weapons testing and modern warfare itself.  Ecosystems around the world are in distress from forces of humanity’s own making….
