Cinema on the Bayou film festival - criminal justice documentary showing

Hello everybody,
The movie festival "Cinema on the Bayou" is coming to downtown Lafayette from January 25th to February 1st. On Tuesday, January 31st at 4pm the documentary "Andrew after Angola" is scheduled at the Cite des Arts. It is a free event and this is the synopsis:

ANDREW AFTER ANGOLA follows a reentry program created to help former prisoners rebuild their lives in Louisiana and explores the complex background of the program's founder, Andrew Hundley.
Andrew is in a unique position to speak to this experience, having spent years in Louisiana's largest prison, known as Angola, for second-degree murder, a crime he committed at age 15. Observational scenes capture important conversations and moments of drama through the perspective of those who have served decades behind bars. The film allows time to consider the tough questions it raises, namely, whether Andrew and the people he works with deserve a second chance.
