Under One Roof, Trial, Penalty and Civics Lesson
The New York Times published a long feature article by Michael Wilson about Red Hook Community Justice Center. Now six years old, the court in Red Hook, Brooklyn is one of a kind, the nation’s first multijurisdictional community court. It combines elements of criminal, family and housing courts not only under the same roof, but also before the same judge, Alex M. Calabrese.

Our acclaimed release RED HOOK JUSTICE was filmed over the course of nearly two years, as the filmmakers were granted unique access to film the daily activities of the Red Hook Community Justice Center, for in-depth look at the defendants and staff who are part of this increasingly influential experiment.
