Ex Libris: a film about the Internationalist Prison Books Collective

One of our collective members made this 10 minute documentary on our group and we wanted to share it with all of y’all. Enjoy!

From the Description:

Ex Libris is a Latin phrase meaning “from the library of…” It is intended to be followed by someone’s name or the name of the library to which the book belongs. But standing alone, “Ex Libris” expresses the potential for literature to be nomadic, to shift between owners and for the Chapel Hill Prison Books Collective, the physical exchange of books between those both inside and outside prison walls also means the sharing of a greater vision.

The people you will see featured are some of the group’s core and equal members who are supported by a rotating door of volunteers.

The Collective formed five years ago to send books to prisoners in Mississippi, Alabama, and North Carolina. This piece is a small sketch of what the Collective does and how it operates. It does not and cannot unfold the story of the prison industrial complex although the collective’s work is an effort against the PIC. For that reason, this video focuses on what these volunteers do and how much work is put into the project. The reasons why they do it are for you to research and explore.
