Panel 13 Safety Orange - A Look at the Criminal Justice System from an Architectual Perspective - A Film by James Davis

Safety Orange examines how the architecture of public schools has come to mirror that of the prison over the last thirty years. The film outlines how the burgeoning criminal justice system has spilled over from the prison into society generally, for some as irrational fear of crime and persecution and for others a very real experience of repression at the hands of the state. The film features interviews with *Ruth Wilson Gilmore, *Mike Davis, *Peter Linebaugh and Roz Braz.[4]
