Tonight: Death Row @ AKAG

1

Tonight at 7:30pm at the Albright-Knox, UB professors Bruce Jackson and Diane Christian present Death Row, their 1979 film about men in Texas prisons waiting to be executed. It’s an important film, and rarely shown on a big screen. Plus, on the way to the auditorium, you’ll walk through Cummins Wide, an exhibition of photos Jackson took in Arkansas prisons in the early 1970s. There will be a discussion of the film afterward.

Here’s an interview with Jackson about his prison work.
