Free Screening of Documentary Milwaukee 53206

Thursday, January 11, 2018

The US has the most prisoners of any nation in the world, both in raw numbers and by percentage of the population. In Milwaukee’s 53206 ZIP code, 62% of adult men have spent time in prison, making it the most incarcerated ZIP code in the nation. Directed by award winning producer and director, Keith McQuirter, “MILWAUKEE 53206” chronicles the lives of those living in the 53206 ZIP code. Through the intimate stories of three 53206 residents, Beverly Walker, Dennis Walton and Chad Wilson, the film examines the high toll that excessive jail sentencing takes on individuals and families that make up the community. “With so many families living with the impact of incarceration, it was important to find real stories that allow a rare glimpse into how incarceration impacts family systems and the community at large,” said McQuirter.
