um beijo para gabriela


Penny's invite

Next SATURDAY, December 20th, A KISS FOR GABRIELA is thrilled to support a finishing funds party to support the documentary NO HUMAN INVOLVED at the Maysles Institute and Cinema in Harlem. This is an incredibly important film by amazing activist and film maker, PJ Starr, about why incarcerating people under harsh anti-prostitution policies must end. Please come, celebrate all that has been accomplished so far, have a glass of wine, enjoy music by DJ Bent and learn about learn about the issues in Arizona why Marcia Powell (the focus of the film) was left to die in a cage in Perryville prison.

There is a suggested donation of $20 per person to contribute to the film, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Guests who contribute to the film by RSVPing with donation of $20 or more will be given a limited edition postcard based on original art work from Arizona and 1 free raffle ticket. Since NO HUMAN INVOLVED is a project fiscally sponsored by Women Make Movies, so donations are also tax deductible.


MORE ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY: In 2009 after she was sentenced to more than two years in prison for prostitution, Marcia Powell was locked in a metal cage in the desert sun at an Arizona prison. Four hours later she collapsed in the 107-degree heat, and by day’s end she was dead after being removed from life support by the Department of Corrections. Even though an internal investigation revealed that guards had denied her water and ridiculed her when she pleaded for help, no one was ever charged. The documentary NO HUMAN INVOLVED investigates the circumstances of Marcia’s death, exposing the system that has lead to the death of scores of others in facilities across Arizona, and documents a movement that has formed seeking justice in her name.
