This screening will take place on Tuesday, June 14 at 7PM at the Landmark Oriental Theatre. A Q+A with filmmakers, the film’s subjects, and community leaders featured in the film will take place immediately following the screening at approximately 8:00pm. Be a part of the Q+A by following Milwaukee 53206 on Facebook and joining us with Facebook Live. All you have to do is follow and join us at 8:00pm.
This event is made possible by personal financial support of Chris Abele, Milwaukee Film Co-Founder and Board Member, the current Milwaukee County Executive.
“In my new term as County Executive, my highest priority is reducing the racial disparities that exist in jobs, housing, education, and health care throughout this city, and especially in the 53206 area,” explained Abele. “Everyone has heard the statistics, but statistics don’t tell the story. The people do. By having Milwaukee Film host the world premiere of this new documentary, my hope is that more people can hear real stories from real people living the reality of those statistics and be moved to make a difference.”
The film’s director, Keith McQuirter, added, “We are excited to work with Milwaukee Film to premiere Milwaukee 53206 here, in the very city our film takes place. The people of the city have been extraordinary allies in helping us tell this story, and it’s my hope that it reflects the experience of what life is like with an incarcerated loved one. It’s also my hope the film will offer an avenue for people to look deeper into the justice system and how it’s impacting families and communities, not just in the 53206 zip code, but across the nation.”
