The United States incarcerates more of its citizens than any other nation in the world. Once a person has been convicted of a crime he/she will be discriminated against “legally” for employment, housing, education, and government benefits. In America, the “face of crime” is African and Latino males, while the “real criminals” are administering criminal justice.
It’s one thing to punish people for “bad choices” or “bad behavior”, but to establish barriers so these people cannot be productive citizens is inhumane and a excessively aggressive method to create a judicial system for failure. This system of profiting from “free labor” is beyond greedy to plain evil.
The population that make up the large majority of people incarcerated in federal, state and local prison/jail, are the “unwanted population” or “poor people” or to sum it up best “Victims of Misfortune”.
VICTIMS OF MISFORTUNE is a feature-length, social change documentary that will give a historical and current look at America’s criminal justice system and the discriminatory policies that people with a criminal background face, post conviction/release.
The goal of Victims of Misfortune is to boldly confront the problems of America’s criminal justice system, public policies, and the impact of prison labor on American workers and also provide valuable solutions to those people who are being discriminated against. This feature-length documentary will be available for use in order to raise consciousness and organize for reform.
