  • FILM / Subculture Film Festival presents: Ask Her About The Art

    Dir: Karim Dakkon / 60 min / 2023 / United States

    As a sociological statement, Carol Strick collects prison art to show and sell at galleries; sending all profits back to the prisoners so they can buy food and art supplies. Ask Her About The Art is a vérité documentary that explores the obstacles prisoners face in order to create, the alternative lifestyle of the Strick family, and the insidious intentions of the prison industrial complex.

    There will be a talk back with Director Karim Dakkon, Carol Strick, and Eddie Strick.

    Space is limited; online registration required.


  • MUSIC / The Jake Walden Band

    Based in South Florida, the Jake Walden Band is fronted by lead guitarist and vocalist, Jake Walden. Raised on music legends like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, Jake Walden developed a passion for old-school guitar riffs, slide and soulful vocals. His unique blend of improv rock, blues and jam is represented in his blend of original music and select covers. His debut album, “Carry Me Home,” features Grammy award-winning drummer Tyler Greenwell from the Tedeschi Trucks Band.

    Band members include Ed Berrios (guitar), Marc Gagne (bass) and Brian Baudrit (drums).
