Join us as the 4th Annual (In)Justice For All Film Festival kicks off with an opening reception as we pause for a few minutes to share our appreciation and celebrate all of the filmmakers, members of the festival team, our partner organizations from throughout Chicago, and our financial and media sponsors. These individuals and organizations are critical to our ability to hold this film festival, particularly at this scale, and we treasure their support. Light refreshments will be served.

OPENING NIGHT PROGRAM: SCREENING OF RIKERS: AN AMERICAN JAIL
This marks the 5th year for our festival and we hope you will join us for a short program recognizing the team that has made it all happen. In America there are three jails that stand out above all others in the sheer size of their operations, and the fear and terror they evoke - L.A. County, Cook County, and Riker's Island (in New York). We are please to be able to screen "Rikers," an excellent documentary that brings life in these jails up close and personal. Following the film we will be able to discuss the documentary in more detail with someone that has lived it.
