I Could Tell You ‘Bout My Life chronicles the journey of 19-year-old filmmaker Mike Martin as he attempts to chart a new path for himself after five months of incarceration at Riker’s Island in New York when he was just 17.

Through conversations with his grandmother, his parole officer, and his mentors at Friends of Island Academy, where he is working towards his GED, Mike explores questions of how he landed in prison and how sharing his story is the key to creating a brighter future for himself and fostering conversation about more just and equitable alternatives to mass incarceration.

Directed by Mike Martin

  • The screening will be followed by a LIVE conversation with director Mike Martin and his filmmaker mentor Chiemi Karasawa (director/producer, Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me, The Betrayal: Nerakhoon), moderated by Kenyamarie Mahone (TEACH member; sophomore, Pomona College)
  • The conversation will be followed by a virtual After Party featuring musical performances by filmmaker/musician Mike Martin, New York-based poet/Hip-Hop artist Messiah Ramkissoon, and percussion artist Bashiri Johnson.

Total program 90 min.
