Film Screening of What I Want My Words to Do to You: Voices from Inside a Women’s Maximum Security Prison (2003)

This PBS special pays tribute to the power of words, whether written on a page or spoken through a microphone. Playwright Eve Ensler went to New York’s Bedford Hills Correctional Facility and held a series of writing workshops with the female inmates, challenging them to express their anger and frustration through the written word. The result is a series of monologues that are eventually performed by some of Hollywood’s most recognizable faces (Glenn Close, Rosie Perez, Marisa Tomei).
Hope to see you there!
