Documentary screening and panel at The New Parkway.

The Express recently published a two-part feature called “Trapped” (see 1/6 and 1/13) that reported on the difficulty for inmates sentenced to life with the possibility of parole to actually attain parole. On February 2, The New Parkway (474 24th St., Oakland) will be screening Juvies, a documentary that explores similar cases, but in regards to youthful offenders. The 2004 film follows several children who were sent to prison with little chance of returning home. At this special screening, one of the film’s subjects who achieved release after the completion of the film will be present for a discussion. Topics will include Senate Bills 260 and 261, which created the possibility of parole for life-term prisoners who were convicted in their youth.
