Director Greg Kwedar’s Sing Sing will close out this year’s Seattle International Film Festival. The feature, inspired by real-life events, stars Colman Domingo as Divine G, an inmate serving a sentence at Sing Sing Correctional Facility for a crime he didn’t do. He finds comfort in Sing Sing’s Rehabilitation Through the Arts (RTA) program, where he and his fellow inmates embark on a journey to mount a comedy inspired by Shakespeare when a newcomer, Clarence, joins the group. Domingo and Paul Raci play characters inspired by real people—while the rest of the cast is mainly composed of formerly incarcerated actors playing versions of themselves. 

After this screening, head over to MOHAI for SIFF’s after-party. Heads-up: SIFF says they’re giving a special prize to the person wearing the oldest SIFF swag
