Herman’s House (2013)

October 27 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Herman's House Poster

In conjunction with the award-winning PBS series POV, WMHT Educational Telecommunications and the Breathing Lights project, a multi-city art installation in Albany, Schenectady, and Troy, Opalka presents Herman’s House (2013), a film about the longest-serving prisoner in solitary confinement in the United States and the artist who reached out to him.

The film documents the friendship between Herman Wallace, who has always maintained his innocence, and the artist Jackie Sumell in a testament to the transformative power of art.

Discussion afterward led by Barbara Nelson, lead architect, Breathing Lights, and Executive Director at TAP Inc., the Capital Region’s Community Design Center. Anthony Farley, James Campbell Matthews Distinguished Professor of Jurisprudence at Albany Law School and Karen Murtagh, executive director of Prisoner’s Legal Services of New York.
