Our film this month is a joint presentation between Sensible Cinema, the Unitarian Universalist Art Committee, and Five Keys Charter Schools. It will begin at 5:00pm as an Art exhibit on the walls of the two adjoining King rooms at the UU Church. We will start the film at the regular time (6:30 – 6:45pm) in the Martin Luther King Room allowing time before the film-showing to view the exhibit. The film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring some of the subjects in the film and the filmmakers.
The filmmakers, Annelise Wunderlich and Richard O’Connell, have allowed us to pre-broadcast this preview screening of the film.
Attached is our regular flyer and the Five Keys Charter Schools’ artistic announcement of the same event.

The Corridor is a film about changing lives through education for adults serving time in jail. It’s also about “restorative justice”, or shifting away from punishment toward a lasting rehabilitation. The documentary takes the viewer through a semester in the nation’s first high school custom-built inside a jail facility. Founded by the San Francisco Sherrif’s Dept., Five Keys Charter School and Programs are high schools and vocational programs for adults inside county jails and at over fifty post-release sites and community programs throughout San Francisco, Solano, Alameda, San Mateo and Los Angeles counties (www.fivekeycharter.org).
Filmmakers Annelise Wunderlich and Richard O’Connell join forces to produce a revealing look at the corridors of a jail system that formerly meant the start of a cycle of incarceration for many people who ended up there. We will follow a class to graduation, which marks a new opportunity for those in the U.S. correction system.
This special Kings Gallery art event features a 7-year retrospective of artwork by the Five Keys Charter School, the film screening, and a post-screening discussion with the filmmakers, along with members of the charter school . The exhibit runs May 23 to July 2, with a multidisciplinary Artists’ Reception, Sunday, June 18th, 1:30 to 3:00pm.
