It is a combination of a football game

NOTES FROM THE FIELD

Available for Digital Download March 26th

 

Tony-nominated actress and playwright Anna Deavere Smith brings attention to America’s failed justice system in the compelling HBO Film Notes From the Field, available for Digital Download on March 26th.

In this unique and “electrifying” (The Daily Beast) one-woman show, Smith shares stories from 18 real-life people, including current and former inmates, protestors, educators, politicians and others fighting in their communities for a lost generation of American youth impacted by America’s school-to-prison pipeline. Over the course of 90 minutes, Notes From the Field shines a light on America’s failed system as a hope to inspire awareness and change.

Smith’s honors include the MacArthur Award, the National Humanities Medal, The Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize, and two Tony Award nominations. She was a runner-up for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama for her play Fires in the Mirror and has starred in The West Wing, Nurse Jackie and Black-ish.

Notes From the Field is executive produced by Gary Goetzman, whose HBO credits include Game Change, Olive Kitteridge and The Pacific, and Anna Deavere Smith; conceived and written by Anna Deavere Smith; directed by Kristi Zea.
