Goro Toshima's Documentary A Hard Straight
Several people who couldn't make it to the conference have asked for more information on Goro Toshima's film we showed on Thursday, A Hard Straight: A Documentary About Doing Time on the Outside. The film is absolutely phenomenal. It provides an intimate peek into the life of three people - a tattoo artist with a poetic soul and strong gang affiliations, a drug dealer trapped in the Tenderloin, and a mother of three working on repairing her relationship with her children - who, upon release from prison, are trying to rebuild their lives.
