St. John Film Society – Press Release

St. John Film Society presents:

Concrete, Steel and Paint

Tuesday, February 7, 2012
7:30 pm at St. John School of the Arts, Cruz Bay

Directed by Cindy Burstein and Tony Heriza
55 minutes, 2009, Documentary

When men in a Pennsylvania state prison join with victims of crime to create a mural about healing, their views on punishment, remorse and forgiveness collide.  Finding consensus is not easy, but as the participants move through the creative process, mistrust gives way to genuine moments of human contact and common purpose.

This complex story raises important questions about crime, justice and reconciliation, and dramatically illustrates how art can facilitate dialogue about difficult issues.


TONY HERIZA Since co-founding the Community Media Workshop in Dayton, Ohio in 1974, Tony Heriza has been involved in many aspects of media for social change: producing, editing, teaching and working with community organizations. His work has been broadcast nationally on PBS and featured in many festivals. He is now the Director of Educational Outreach for the American Friends Service Committee and teaches documentary film at U Penn / Philadelphia.  Along with his co-producer, Cindy Burstein, he is an active member of the New Day Film distribution co-operative.

JANE GOLDEN As a young artist Jane  was initially hired by former Mayor Wilson Goode to help combat the graffiti crisis plaguing the city. She reached out to graffiti writers to help turn their destructive energies into creative ones.  Under the direction of Golden, the Mural Arts Program has become the nation’s largest mural program earning Philadelphia international recognition as the“City of Murals.”  The Mural Arts Program has created more than 3,000 murals.  In addition, Golden has developed art education and workforce development programs that serve youth and adult offenders at area prisons, detention centers, and residential placement facilities, utilizing the power of art to break the cycle of crime and violence in Philadelphia’s communities and sparking a national dialogue based on the concept of restorative justice. In addition to leading the Mural Arts Program, Golden has been an adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania and a guest instructor at Princeton University. Golden holds a Master of Fine Arts from the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, and degrees in Fine Arts and Political Science from Stanford University.
