A week ago I saw the very poignant documentary, Thirty Seconds Away: Breaking the Cycle at is premiere at the Milwaukee Film Festival. I have been remiss in writing about it because I have had a hard time unpacking it and thinking about it critically--in a good way. The most concrete thing I can say about is that you need to see it. The film looks at the men caught up in a cycle of homelessness in Milwaukee County and their interaction with law enforcement and the criminal justice system.
Go see the final screening tonight at the Avalon in Bayview if you are in the Milwaukee area. Tickets are available here.
Watch the trailer and I urge you to go to the screening if you can. I'll try to make sense of my response to it, in the meantime.
