THE TORTURE LETTERS

by Laurence Ralph

 

Author and professor of Anthropology at Princeton, Laurence Ralph created an animated accompaniment to his book "The Torture Letters - Reckoning With Police Violence". In collaboration with Animation Director Jocie Juritz, he realized a powerful short illustrating four of the open letters addressing racial profiling and police torture.

 

Look forward to the screening of THE TORTURE LETTERS and meet Laurence Ralph at the fireside chat after the show!
