A Place to Stand
Encore Screening

A Place to Stand is the remarkable story of Jimmy Santiago Baca’s transformation from a functionally illiterate convict to an award-winning poet, novelist and screenwriter. A petty thief and drug dealer sentenced to five years in Arizona State Prison, Jimmy survived the brutal inhumanity of his incarceration by exploring deep within, discovering poetry at his soul’s core and healing deep childhood wounds. His story, both shocking and awe-inspiring, shows us how the power of art can transform and awaken.

A Q&A with director Daniel Glick will follow.
