Equitas’ mission includes working within and making an impact on the community. It is with this in mind that Imprisoned will have a benefit screening on October 25, 2018, at the historic Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles, hosted by actors Morales and Lisa Vidal, both Puerto Rican. The screening will benefit Puerto Ricans in Action, and is a way of giving back to the island that welcomed their production with open arms a year ago last May.
Imprisoned was the last film to complete principal photography in Puerto Rico before the devastation of hurricanes Irma and Maria hit the island. The storyline was inspired ten years ago by Kampf’s theater work in minimum and maximum prisons, where he met prisoners sentenced to life, and the lucky ones who had turned their lives around and a new lease on life.
