Concrete, Steel & Paint: A film about crime, restoration and healing (USA, 55 min)
Directed by Cindy Burstein & Tony Heriza
When men in Pennsylvania state prison join with victims of crime to create a mural about healing, their views on punishment, remorse, and forgiveness collide. Finding consensus is not easy – but as the participants move through the creative process, mistrust gives way to surprising moments of human contact and common purpose.
