Pens to Pictures is a filmmaking collaborative that teaches and empowers incarcerated women to make their own short films, from script to screen. During its inaugural year in 2016, five films were made in partnership between women in Dayton Correctional Institution and the Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Pennsylvania artist communities. These films are screening in prisons, community spaces, schools, festivals and beyond in 2017.
In celebration of Women's History Month, Wright State University-Lake Campus will host a screening and Q & A session with Pens to Pictures founder, Chinonye Chukwu. Chukwu is a filmmaker and educator who uses teaching as a form of activism. She is an Assistant Professor of Motion Pictures at Wright State University, where she gives students the opportunity to work on films made through Pens to Pictures and other social justice advocacy projects throughout Ohio.
Cash donations are appreciated and will go to the Pens to Pictures collaborative fund.
