Circles with Cassidy Friedman & Eric Butler


Get excited to see 'Circles' by hearing the stories behind making the film from Director Cassidy Friedman and star Eric Butler on docupod. Cassidy & Eric talk about meeting through legendary activist Fania Davis, the importance of restorative justice, the similarities of their backgrounds, and Eric having to balance working with Oakland students using restorative justice while having his son arrested for a crime he didn't commit. Plus they talk about why Eric refused to do the film at first including what Cassidy had to do to change his mind and earn the trust of Eric and the students. The two also spoke about the title and how it built as filming went on especially after meeting Eric's mentor and learning about the archives of their incredible work.
