Production Still Paper City #NoHoIFF
Paper City
Directed by Akil Gibbons

“Paper City” is about the American Dream in one of the nation’s arson capitals. The film examines the school-to-prison pipeline—the nationwide phenomenon in which high dropout rates coincide with mass incarceration of urban youth. Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s final book, Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community? Paper City aims to continue the legacy of King by bringing a civil rights perspective to modern day America.
 
Produced & Directed by Akil Gibbons.
Featuring Alex Morse, Mayor of Holyoke, Massachusetts
