Russia's dismal post-Soviet economy has given rise to widespread alcoholism, depression, and divorce. One consequence is that many desperate young Russian women turn to marriage agencies in a bid to escape--those linking Russian women with "rich" American men are thriving. Filmed principally in St. Petersburg over several years, this film examines the motiviations of two agency heads and follows several of these women as they seek a brighter future. Told from all these women's point of view, this is an often brilliant, funny, and unflinching examination of a cultural reality: the 'mail-order bride' with a clear-eyed certainty about what she is doing, and why

San Francisco native Regina Allen spent her early years charming everyone she met, making her living as a con artist and hustler. Richard "Smiley" Salazar, a veteran of foster homes, juvenile detention and life on the streets of San Fernando, CA, found a home in gang membership. Aaron "Shep" Shepard, sentenced to one year as an accessory to armed robbery, has spent more time in prison on petty parole violations than for his original conviction. A public fascination with crime and criminals is paralleled by a lack of concern for the difficulties facing people as they leave the prison system. The film uses the personal histories, observations, remembrances, and hopes and fears of Regina, Smiley, and Shep to illustrate that getting out and staying out of prison are two very different things
Writ writer( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1960, Fred Arispe Cruz, a young man from San Antonio, Texas, was arrested for robbery, convicted and sent to a state prison farm to pick cotton. Inspired by the civil rights movement, Cruz, a Mexican American with only an 8th grade education, became jailhouse lawyer-- writ writer in prison parlance-- and the catalyst of prison reform in Texas. Because he helped other prisoners with lawsuits, the Texas Department of Corrections classified Cruz as an agitator, transferred him to the Ellis Unit "the Alcatraz of Texas," and subjected him to long periods in solitary confinement. Cruz filed a case against George Beto, director of the TDC, which Cruz won in the Supreme Court. This led directly to the 1974 class action suit that found the TDC system unconstitutional. As told by wardens, convicts, and former prisoners who knew him, the film weaves contemporary and archival film footage to evoke the fascinating transformation of Fred Cruz from prisoner to activist, and a prison system still haunted by its past
