This screening will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with director Adamu Chan and co-producer Rahsaan Thomas, moderated by Asad Muhammad.

Set against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, Adamu Chan’s powerful documentary, What These Walls Won’t Hold, transcends the pandemic, instead shining a light on the transformative power of solidarity amidst adversity at San Quentin State Prison. Chan who was incarcerated there, offers a poignant, first-hand perspective as he chronicles his journey back to freedom, interweaving the stories of his loved ones both inside and outside prison walls. Through their accounts, Chan illuminates a vibrant community built on trust, resilience and a shared commitment to advocating for a brighter future for those behind bars. The film’s inspiring blueprint for resistance and liberation is a call to action for all, urging us to envision a world free from incarceration and oppression.
