Special screening of the Golden Globe and Emmy nominated Netflix Original Series Orange is the New Black, based on the true story of a woman sentenced to fifteen months in prison after being convicted of transporting a suitcase full of drug money to her former girlfriend–an international drug smuggler. Reunited in prison, the two women re-examine their relationship and learn to co-exist with their fellow prisoners. (Based on Piper Kerman’s memoir, Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison.)

We will screen Episode 6 from Season 2 (“You Also Have a Pizza“), followed by a Q&A with the director, Allison Anders (UCSB Film & Media Studies Faculty Member). Moderated by Cynthia Felando (UCSB Film & Media Studies Faculty Member). Post-screening reception will be held in the Michael Douglas Lobby.
