About the Film
In the United States, transgender people are more likely to be incarcerated, and once there, ten times more likely to be assaulted and abused. In this timely documentary, six women share their stories about their experiences in the US prison system, including well-known activists, CeCe McDonald, Miss Major and Ashley Diamond. Through their stories and those of other experts of trans experience, we learn about the inequality of the justice system for trans people, especially trans people of color. The film examines injustice at every stage: targeting of trans people by law enforcement, harsher sentencing, housing trans women with the male population, lack of trans-inclusive health care, horrific acts of abuse during incarceration, and the near-impossible task of creating a life on the outside.
Where Justice Ends is narrated by the Tony award-winning stage, screen and TV actor Brian Stokes Mitchell.
This film will be accompanied by a panel discussion with director George Zuber, documentary subject CeCe McDonald, and moderated by SisTers PGH Executive Director Ciora Thomas.
