The ABCs of Abolition

a Freedom & Captivity production | with music by Kafari

What does a 21st century abolitionist Maine look like? Freedom & Captivity invited Mainers to suggest words that capture their vision of abolition. Over a hundred participants, from South Penobscot to York, from Wilton to Herman, responded. The ABCs of Abolition (9min) showcases their words and interpretations, offering a hopeful and compelling portrait of the way Maine could be. Join us in imagining a different, and better, future.

Premiering Wednesday, September 22, at 6:15 P.M. at Congress Square Park. The evening will start with an introduction from the Maine Prisoner Advocacy Coalition (MPAC) at 6:15, followed by the premiere of The ABCs of Abolition at 6:45 pm, and ending with a screening of the full-length film Time at 7:00 pm. Sponsored by PMA Films and MPAC.

The ABCs of Abolition was filmed and produced by Catherine Besteman, Lorne Carter, and Reagan Dennis for Freedom & Captivity.
