Hard Time
Ronald Harpelle, 2013, 40 min.
Hard Time is a film about Robert Hillary King, the
only one of the Angola 3 to have been released. King
was a political prisoner who spent 29 years in
solitary confinement in the infamous Louisiana State
Penitentiary at Angola. The film focuses on racism
and human rights in the U.S. penal system, and draws
attention to the plight of Herman Wallace and Albert
Woodfox, the other members of the Angola 3, who have
been held in solitary confinement for more than 40
years. Together they formed a prison chapter of the
Black Panther Party to fight for better conditions,
security for inmates and justice behind bars.

Herman's House
Angad Bhalla, 2012, 80 min.
Herman Wallace may be the longest-serving prisoner in
solitary confinement in the United Stateshe's spent
more than 40 years in a 6-by-9-foot cell in
Louisiana. Imprisoned in 1967 for a robbery he
admits, he was subsequently sentenced to life for a
killing he vehemently denies. Herman's House is a
moving account of the remarkable expression his
struggle found in an unusual project proposed by
artist Jackie Sumell. Imagining Wallace's "dream
home" began as a game and became an interrogation of
justice and punishment in America. The film takes us
inside the duo's unlikely 12-year friendship,
revealing the transformative power of art.

Followed by Closing Reception and Party.
