Workshop Screening (mix preview test): Raúl Salinas and the Poetry of Liberation: Un Trip
tickets are $10 online & $15 at the door
A half hour split screen jazz film based on the words of “Un Trip through the Mind Jail” by Raúl Salinas, written in 1969 in Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary. The poem expresses lived experience in La Loma (east Austin). The short explores contemporary issues: imprisonment in the jail machine, community destruction and gentrification, the overwhelming force of cultural memory in sanity and salvation, the need for societal transformation.
