Reviews about A Place to Stand
Daniel Glick’s documentary offers an unflinching look at Jimmy Santiago Baca’s unlikely transformation from an illiterate felon held in one of America’s most violent prisons to a nationally-renown poet who finds redemption behind bars through the painstaking process of learning to read and write. Enlivened by frank interviews with family members, fellow convicts and Baca advocates, this doc is an testament to the power of commitment and the resilience of the human spirit.
This inspiring movie shows that positive human transformation is possible despite an unfortunate childhood and a brutal prison environment; its message of hope can benefit all of us. Thank you!
A riveting story that needed to be to be told. Jimmy Baca was fortunate to have Mr Glick help him tell his story. A must watch.
Jimmy Santiago Baca speaks a language my soul knows and understands. He is an outstanding author, poet and human being.
Never have I been so moved by this Documentary! I rented it on Fathers Day and had a few friends over! What a emotional roller coaster!I adore Jimmy and he and Daniel were superb in putting this together! I highly recommend this to ALL!
