Join Solid Ground at the Social Justice Film Fest for a screening and panel discussion of Guest House, a documentary feature that captures a six-month period of life of three women previously incarcerated for non-violent crimes and now living together.
Guest House takes the viewer through the realities of reintegration from the prison system and dissolves some of the “otherness” that makes us feel more comfortable with our system of justice. The feature attempts to objectively illuminate just how unjust “justice” can be, and just how not “other” many of these women are.
The viewer gets to know the hopes, dreams, desires, and disappointments of our protagonists, and gains insight into their choices. The house is full of diverse personalities driven by survival instincts: characters who use their humor and intelligence to deal with a broken justice system that contributes to the recidivism of its criminals.
