Film Screening: The Mind of Mark DeFriest

When a legendary escape artist comes up for parole after more than 30 years behind bars, a chance for freedom must be weighed against his infamous past. “A bizarre story gets an absorbing telling in Gabriel London’s documentary,” says Dennis Harvey in Variety.

The genesis of Gabriel London’s 2014 documentary, The Mind of Mark DeFriest, can be traced to his Pomona senior film project 14 years ago. He brings it back to where it all began on Tuesday, Nov. 3, when the film will be screened on campus with a Q&A with London after.
