Wilder School to screen "Seats at the Table," a unique documentary film that explores an inmate literature program
On Tuesday, Oct. 1, the Wilder School will present a screening of the feature documentary “Seats at the Table.” The screening will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. at the University Student Commons, Commons Theater located at 907 Floyd Ave.
Directed by Chris Farina, Seats at the Table is an award-winning film that depicts a unique college class which brings together university students with residents of a maximum-security juvenile correctional center through the study of Russian literature. These student-to-student interactions become the catalyst for creating powerful relationships that break down the initial stereotypes they have as they begin this class. Both groups of students come away transformed by the experience, empowered to pursue lives of greater purpose and inspired by the discovery of their shared humanity.
