DEAR FAMILY,

 

We write this letter to you with deep gratitude and exhaustion. As we continue the fight to abolish the Prison Industrial Complex, imagine new ways of being in the world, work to get 45 out of office, manage through a global pandemic, and grieve the countless murders of black people - this is our offering to you.

 

This is a sacred space. This is a tender space. This is a space of listening, learning, acting, and dreaming.

LETTERS FROM PRISONS ABROAD

 

THE VISUAL LETTER COLLECTION

The video series was developed through a collaboration led by Dr. Kamran Afary, with Professor Zachary Zezima’s and students in his Cal State LA Animation Option class, and Dr. Afary's Communication Studies students at Lancaster State Prison.

 

Each film is a letter that utilizes the writing and narration of incarcerated students–responses to prompts on different aspects of interpersonal communication–in conjunction with animation to illuminate and visually represent the inner and outer lives of those within the prison system.
