Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. The film builds to its most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better. http://www.facebook.com/events/505320192991325/

The Writer's Block in the Rivera Court is the premier showing of a new documentary that was filmed at the Writer's Block poetry reading held in the Rivera Court earlier this year. The footage captures creative reflections on Michigan’s prison system, poetic testimonies by juvenile lifers, and the day to day struggle of life behind bars as read by the family members and friends amidst the powerful and iconic imagery painted by Diego Rivera. The Writer's Block is a creative writing program organized by the Hamtramck Free School, serving the residents of the Macomb Regional Correction Facility. (Directed by Katie Barkel, HD Video and Super 8, 2015, 76 minutes) See more at: http://www.dia.org/auxiliaries/event.aspx?id=5327&iid&aux_id=14&cid=100#sthash.RUz95zit.dpuf The Writer's Block would like to thank the family members and friends who read poems on their behalf: Aayat Ali, Tia Anderson, Frances Barber, Michael Brown, Vandella Campbell, Nicole Hamameh, Mercedez P.
