Documentary: 13th

Tuesday, April 18

Tate Hall (Overcash 2nd Floor)

10 a.m.-noon

“13th” takes an unflinching, well-informed and thoroughly researched look at the American system of incarceration, specifically how the prison industrial complex affects people of color. This analysis could not be timelier nor more infuriating. The film builds its case piece by shattering piece, inspiring levels of shock and outrage that stun the viewer, leaving one shaken and disturbed before closing out on a visual note of hope designed to keep us on the hook as advocates for change.

Sufi Soul: The Mystic Music of Islam, documents the many musical subcultures of Sufism as it was incorporated by different cultures in different regions. With many comparisons to Christianity, it displays how with all religions there are zealots and passivists, and the Sufi’s of Islam are passivists who focus primarily on music as a spiritual expression, much like the Christian troubadour or modern Christian Rock churches.
