Sunnybank FIlms, an independent non-profit film
production company located in Watkinsville, GA., presents their new documentary LIFE THE GRIOT:
The United States of America tragically
imprisons more of its citizens than any other nation in the world. The
majority of those incarcerated are young people held for non-violent
crimes. Young males of color, often facing discrimination by law
enforcement and the judiciary, are jailed in significantly
disproportionate numbers. This film is the story of one man's efforts to
stem this tide. This is the story of Lemuel LaRoche, known to the
Athens community as "Life the Griot".
