Referred to as high school “dropouts” in national statistics and common parlance, many of these youth are actually “pushouts,” trying to stay enrolled in school against the odds. The Pushouts tells the story of the one-in-three Latino and Black students nationally who do not graduate, are pushed into continuation schools, low-paying jobs, and—too often—the criminal justice and mass incarceration systems. It also tells the remarkable story of Victor Rios’ evolution from school pushout and Oakland gang member to UC professor, author, and thought leader on the school-to-prison pipeline.

Discussion and Q&A immediately following the screening with director/producer/writer Katie Galloway and producer/co-director Dawn Valadez

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT TICKETING:

Community Cinema tickets are still free, but you must have a ticket to attend the screening. Please select the “Print-at-Home” option when ordering your ticket online, and then either print your ticket at home to bring with you, or show it on your mobile device at the door.

Please arrive earlyfor all Community Cinema screenings. Since this is a free screening, we experience many no-shows and must overbook the theater in order to compensate. Your ticket will not guarantee you a seat if we are already full when you arrive.

You will no longer receive reminder emails about your attendance or asking if you need to cancel, so if you register for a screening but find you are unable to attend, we would be extremely grateful if you would email us at [email protected] to cancel your reservation so we can offer your seat to another patron (and help us pare down the number of aforementioned no-shows).

Thanks for your support of Community Cinema!
