NOT FOR RENT!, Metamora Films latest documentary film is being released and screened at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. The feature length documentary film looks at rental housing barriers ex-felons face as they attempt to rebuild their lives in our communities. With over 95% of the American prison population being released at some point in the future, millions of ex-inmates struggle with ‘red tape’ and strict criminal history rental requirements property managers and landlords enforce. In this unique and powerful film, you’ll meet several people who’ve been personally affected by housing restrictions due to felony convictions.
The film screening is scheduled for April 5th, 2017 from 12:30pm to 2:30pm at the Wildcat Theater. The event is FREE and open to the public including Weber State students who will receive community engagement credit for attending the event. Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Monica Williams, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Weber State, University, the film release is part of the Engaged Learning Series, which is a university-wide series of events designed to engage students, faculty, staff, and community in discussion, debate, dialogue, learning, and action around an issue of public concern. For 2017, the series aims to raise awareness, improve personal behavior, and increase public engagement around the issue of “privilege.” In addition to the screening of NOT FOR RENT!, there will be guest speakers, a Q&A with the film’s director, Matt Duhamel, and a social hour with free lunch catered by Sodexho.
The Utah Prisoner Advocate Network (UPAN) will be present as a vendor with information on their organization, mission statement and how you can get involved in prisoner advocacy work in Utah and beyond.
