Film Screening of “Rikers” this Sunday after worship
A documentary from Bill Moyers, Produced by Mark Levin, Mark Benjamin & Rolake Bamgbose
RIKERS, a riveting new documentary from Bill Moyers, brings you face to face with men and women who have endured incarceration at Rikers Island. Their stories, told direct to camera, vividly describe the cruel arc of the Rikers experience—from the shock of entry, to the extortion and control exercised by other inmates, the oppressive interaction with corrections officers, the beatings and stabbings, the torture of solitary confinement and the psychological barriers of returning to the outside world.
