Attica - The Restored film by Cinda Firestone and Discussion

To Commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Attica Rebellion

Prison  unrest in the United States hit a boiling 
point on September 9, 1971, when inmates at 
Attica State Prison ­ after months of protesting 
inhumane living conditions ­ rebelled, seizing 
part of the prison and taking 35 hostages. The 
uprising was met with a military attack and the 
murder of 43 people after NY State troopers 
assaulted the prisoners. Attica - released 3 
years later - is an investigation of the 
rebellion and its aftermath, piecing together 
documentary footage of the occupation and ensuing assault.

Especially significant today as prisoners from 
Georgia, Ohio, California and other states fight 
for their human rights in the face of increased 
imprisonment and the brutality and torture of long-term solitary confinement.
