Add to my Calendar 2021-01-21 17:00:00 2021-01-21 19:00:00 Discussion of "The 13th", a Film by Ava Duvernay Join the Department of International and Global Studies and the International and Global Studies Student Association for a discussion of the award-winning film “The 13th” by Ava Duvernay. “The 13th” is a powerful and timely exploration of the 13th Amendment and its effects on American society over the last 145 years. Combining archival footage with testimony from activists and scholars, director Ava DuVernay's examination of the U.S. prison system looks at how the country's history of racial inequality drives the high rate of incarceration in America. This event is a discussion of the film led by Dr. Evguenia Davidova, professor of International and Global Studies and University Studies, and we welcome you to join us in exploring the issues it highlights. Please watch the movie in advance of the event! Watch "The 13th" for free on YouTube.  (Content warning: details can be found here) Please think about the following questions as you are watching the film: The film “The 13th” was made in 2016. What makes it even more relevant today?  What are the economic aspects of mass incarceration? How is the international/global framework interwoven into the movie? How does the “prison-industrial complex” affect the image of the U.S. as a major international player?
