Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall

Tuesday, March 29

7:00-8:30 PM

Textor Hall, Room 102

Ithaca College

 

“PRISON TERMINAL: THE LAST DAYS OF PRIVATE JACK HALL … breaks through the walls of one of Americas oldest maximum security prisons to tell the story of the final months in the life of a terminally ill prisoner and the hospice volunteers, they themselves prisoners, who care for him. The film draws from footage shot over a six-month period behind the walls of the Iowa State Penitentiary and provides a fascinating and often poignant account of how the hospice experience can profoundly touch even the forsaken lives of the incarcerated.” http://www.prisonterminal.com/

Presented by the Ithaca College Gerontology Institute in partnership with the Department of Philosophy and Religion.

“The Lady in Number 6 is one of the most inspirational and uplifting stories of the year.  As the world’s oldest pianist and holocaust survivor, 109 year-old Alice Herz Sommer shares her views on how to live a long and happy life. She discusses music, laughter and how to remain optimistic come what may. The film features beautiful photographs and rare film footage that truly brings Alice’s extraordinary story to life.” http://nickreedent.com/
