Join director Michael Martin at the Museum of the City of New York this Thursday night for the world premiere of his short film I Could Tell You ’Bout My Life (2018), followed by a conversation with Martin and New York artists Onyedika Chuke, Sophia Dawson, and Messiah Ramkissoon.
In April 2017, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a law to raise the age of criminal responsibility to 18 years old so that 16- and 17-year-olds were no longer prosecuted and incarcerated as adults. However, director Martin was arrested at age 17 before this law went into effect, and he was sentenced to five months in prison at New York City’s infamous Rikers Island jail. I Could Tell You ’Bout My Life, filmed, narrated, and directed by Martin at age 19, two years after his incarceration, reflects on his time at Rikers and how it has affected his life. The conversation that follows the screening, moderated by Tramia Jackson, will cover the power of art to address the problem of mass incarceration. For more information on the individual artists involved in the conversation, see the Museum’s event page here.
The event is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, students, and educators with ID, and $10 for Museum members. The price includes Museum admission, though all galleries close at 6 pm. Tickets can be purchased here.
When: Thursday, February 7, 6:30–8:30 pm
Where: Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street, East Harlem, Manhattan
