The film NO HUMAN INVOLVED is nearly completed thanks to the support of so many people, but we still have to raise a bit more to cover everything for the final edit and DVD mastering. This party and fundraiser is a celebration of all we have achieved so far, PJ (the director) and her friends at the Maysles Institute will be there to fill your glass, you will enjoy the music programmed by DJ Bent, and you will be able to preview some of the film as a work in progress. We are suggesting a donation of $20 per person to contribute to the film, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Bring friends who want to learn about the issues in Arizona, to find out more about why Marcia Powell was left to die in a cage in Perryville prison and to learn why incarcerating people under harsh anti-prostitution policies must end.Guests who contribute to the film by RSVPing with donation of $20 or more at the links below will be given a limited edition postcard based on original art work from Arizona and 1 free raffle ticket.
NO HUMAN INVOLVED is a project fiscally sponsored by Women Make Movies, so donations are also tax deductible.
MORE ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY: In 2009 after she was sentenced to more than two years in prison for prostitution, Marcia Powell was locked in a metal cage in the desert sun at an Arizona prison. Four hours later she collapsed in the 107-degree heat, and by day’s end she was dead after being removed from life support by the Department of Corrections. Even though an internal investigation revealed that guards had denied her water and ridiculed her when she pleaded for help, no one was ever charged. The documentary NO HUMAN INVOLVED investigates the circumstances of Marcia’s death, exposing the system that has lead to the death of scores of others in facilities across Arizona, and documents a movement that has formed seeking justice in her name.
