Life After Life
Directed by Tamara Perkins
As adolescents trapped in a world of drugs, violence, and daily trauma, Noel, Harrison and Chris quickly lost their way. Before they could become adults, they were locked up in prison—given sentences that could leave them in their cells for the rest of their lives.
Years later, they were given another chance: parole. Tamara Perkins' "Life After Life" follows their stories upon their release—each very different, each with unexpected, often heartbreaking turns and detours. Understated and surprising, "Life After Life" reveals what their paths to a new life—often measured in small, awkward steps—can teach us about the prison system, American life, and our own values.
Moderator: Dawn Valadez
Dawn Valadez's first film, "Going on 13" premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and made its television debut on PBS. Her new project, "Teacher Like Me," follows a group of aspiring students, some of whom were former gang members, as they work to become teachers in their local communities. She is the Vice-President of the Board of BAVC (Bay Area Video Coalition) and consults with non-profits, educational institutions, and filmmakers on fund-raising, grant writing, program development, and strategic planning.
