I Come From

I Come FromPresenter: Robby Henson, Founder & Artistic Director, Voices Inside

A screening of this new documentary film, I Come From, illustrates the mission of the Voices Inside program which is to develop empathy, compassion and trust, and to nurture a desire to help others. Screenwriter and film director Robby Henson (who has directed films starring Academy Award winners Billy Bob Thornton and Patricia Arquette) founded this inspirational inmate writing and theatre program at Northpoint Training Center, a medium security prison near Danville, KY that uses theatre arts and creative thinking to increase communication skills, build self-esteem, humanize and enrich the lives of those closed off behind bars. He will speak about the film and a Q&A will follow.
