(USA/2016—directed by Keith McQuirter)
Milwaukee 53206 tells the story of those affected by mass incarceration in America’s most incarcerated ZIP code. Through the powerful journeys of Beverly Walker, Dennis Walton and Chad Wilson, viewers witness how incarceration has shaped their lives, their families and their community. The film examines how decades of poverty, unemployment and a lack of opportunity has contributed to the crisis of mass incarceration in this community and others across the nation. The movie is directed by former Saginaw resident Keith McQuirter, who first made a name on the film scene as a producer of Brick City, the documentary series about then Newark mayor Cory Booker.
