Documentary Film Showing: Herman’s House

March 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Herman Wallace may hold the record for being in solitary confinement the longest in the United States. He spent more than 40 years in a 6 by 9 foot cell in Louisiana. Imprisoned in 1969 for a robbery he admits, he was subsequently sentenced to life for a killing he vehemently denies.

Herman’s House is a moving account of the remarkable expression his struggle found in an unusual project proposed by artist Jackie Sumell. Imaging Wallace’s “dream home” began as a game and became an interrogation of justice and punishment in America. The film takes us inside the duo’s unlikely 12-year friendship, revealing the transformative power of art. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
