DOCUMENTARY SCREENING: "I Come From" with Visiting Director

"I Come From" is a documentary that looks at incarcerated poets and playwrights who use the power of creativity to change their lives.

Director Robby Henson will attend and participate in a Q&A following the screening. John Fitch and Chad Cogdill, Department of Communication film concentration faculty, will moderate.

Incarcerated writers in the program have won national awards and their works have been performed at Louisville Actors Theater and New York City theaters.
