About the Event

In this documentary produced and directed by Anne Makepeace, two Native American judges reach back to traditional concepts of law in an effort to reduce incarceration rates, foster greater safety for their communities, and create a more positive future for youth. By addressing the root causes of crime, the judges model restorative systems that work—motivating mainstream courts across the country to take notice.
A conversation with the filmmaker, Yurok Chief Justice Abby Abinanti, and Chief Justice Claudette White (San Manuel Tribal Court/Quechan Tribal Court) follows the screening.
Run Time: 87 minutes
