Event Description:
Join us for a film screening and post-discussion on the film, Free Men, by Anne-Frédérique Widmann. This film program is in collaboration with the University of Arkansas Black Alumni Society and the Black culture preservation platform, Visionairi. This documentary shares the story of Kenneth Reams who, at age 18, was convicted for capital murder without firing a bullet. He became the youngest inmate on Arkansas death row. Art and love have freed Kenneth from his mental chains and this film has aided in the push to free him from his physical chains as well. Sentenced to death, he was able to survive decades of imprisonment in complete isolation through the creation of art. As the narrator, Kenneth shares intimate stories of how he found a purpose in life when all signs of hope seemed lost. Following the film stick around for a post discussion with Kenneth Reams and Anne-Frédérique Widmann who will be available electronically as well as Garbo Hearne of Hearne Fine Art in Little Rock and Ashley Edwards, the programming manager for Bentonville Film Festival.
Free, registration required.
