This summer the Art Factory collaborated with Decarcerate PA and PhillyCAM for six weeks to make three short stop-motion videos to help people realize the grand actuality of the Prison Industrial Complex. PhillyCAM was gracious enough to let us use their equipment and their space while young people from the Art Factory planned, filmed, recorded and edited the 3 videos. Decarcerate PA helped clear up the clouds by talking more about what we do as well as the political and community results and consequences of mass incarceration.
