Cine Asia Presents Defender (Sacramento Internatio...

Presented by Sacramento International Film Festival and California Film Foundation at Crocker Art Museum

Defender is a feature length film about the critical role that public defenders play in fighting for racial and social justice in America. The film takes viewers on a personal and intense tour through the underbelly of the criminal injustice system, seen through the eyes of San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi, who is one of the nation’s few elected public defenders.

Adachi tells the story of how public defenders came to be, and why they play a critical role as the watchdogs of a system that over-incarcerates people of color and poor people.

This event is part of the Sacramento International Film Festival.
