Can We Wait 75 Years to Cut the Prison Population in Half? by Nazgol Ghandnoosh

Wednesday, March 27 @ 17:0018:30
Rush Rhees Library at the University of Rochester,
755 Library Rd.
Rochester, New York 14627 United States

"Ending the era of mass incarceration" is an emerging consensus issue but what would it take to truly end mass incarceration? Looking at decarcerating trends in New York, New Jersey, and California the Sentencing Project's Nazgol Ghandnoosh argues for a more robust approach than the ones presently on offer. Releasing "non-violent drug offenders" is a critical step, but if we are serious about ending mass incarceration, we need to meaningfully reform sentences for people convicted of violent crimes.

At the Sentencing Project, Ghandnoosh has written about the declining prospects for parole on life sentences, racial perceptions of crime, and about best practices for eliminating racial inequality in the criminal justice system. She is finalizing a report featuring 15 reforms scaling back excessive penalties for violent crimes. Ghandnoosh holds a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California, Los Angeles (2013) and regularly presents to academic, practitioner, and general audiences.

The Parallax View screening

Wednesday, March 27 @ 19:3021:12
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen The Parallax View (Alan J. Pakula, U.S. 1974, 102 min., 35mm) as part of the Movies in the Movies series.

Warren Beatty stars as newspaper reporter Joe Frady in the second installment of director Alan J. Pakula's "paranoia trilogy." Inspired by the assassinations of John F. and Robert Kennedy, the film depicts the assassination of a fictional presidential candidate. Years later, the witnesses to the assassination are dying mysteriously, one by one. As Frady becomes more deeply involved in his investigation, he is led to the assassin-recruiting Parallax Corporation and begins to uncover a vast corporate and political conspiracy. Vision remains a central theme throughout, as action is obscured by curtains, fences, glass, and shadows. The indoctrination sequence is foundational in the exploration of film editing and recalls a similar sequence in 1971's A Clockwork Orange.
