This event is free and open to the public.
A Way Out tells the stories of three minority men from Newark, New Jersey, who successfully beat the odds…not by luck, but rather by receiving deliberate support and opportunities allowing them not only to escape a brutal cycle of poverty, incarceration, and limited life expectancy, but to recreate their own destinies.
Lauded by U.S. Senator Cory Booker as “urgently important,” A Way Out provides a historical, economic, and academic analysis of poverty, and re-examines the history of racism and inequality in the United States. Directed by NYUSPS CALA instructor Gladys Bensimon, this documentary features experts on urban entrepreneurship, poverty, and ethics, but above all the film gives voice to those who are desperately seeking–and finding– a way out.
