The film “To Kill or to Cure” will be screened from 12:45 to 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14, at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, 27074 Patwin Road in rural West Davis.
“In powerful and disturbing footage, Canadian filmmakers go behind covert walls exposing a secret culture in prison life — often a living death,” a news release said. “The film is a shocker stemming from medieval practices in China, Japan, Canada, the U.S. and Finland.”
“To Kill or To Cure” looks at complex issues of crime and motives of punishment. A discussion follows including California Propositions 34 and 36. How do societies deal with those who commit crimes and yet protect individual rights? Whose interests are served? What methods are effective? Is society really safe? And at what costs?
