Just Mercy – Movie Night
September 10 @ 8:15 pm - 10:30 pm
Freeland Film Festival is coming to Ripon ahead of its virtual Film Festival from September 11-14 (freelandfilmfest.org). Freeland, along with the Center for Politics and the People, the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, and Campus Christian Fellowship, are honored to sponsor a free showing of the 2019 film Just Mercy. A powerful and though-provoking true story about the importance of confronting injustice, Just Mercy is a bestselling book by Bryan Stevenson that has been adapted into a feature film. A lawyer becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for inmates wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the odds and the system stacked against them.
Freeland is offering special student-discounted festival passes. If interested, you can check out the Freeland Film Festival website here: freelandfilmfest.org. The student discount code is freelandstudent.
