Healing Justice, our most recent documentary, supports the engagement necessary for the work of addressing and healing the racism embedded in our current justice system. The development of new narratives provides understanding of structural oppression while also sparking the public will necessary to change it.
Take a look at the image on the cover of Healing Justice. Recessed in the back of the cell, past the bent bars, is a blue glowing nautilus shell.
We chose the nautilus shell because it is a powerful image of growth and expansion as seen in nature. Its growth is predictable, yet as it expands into more and more space, it symbolizes the freedom to change, build and grow.
The nautilus is meant to inspire and remind us that our movements can begin from a place of small concentrated energy and grow into a more just reality. Take inspiration from the nautilus that, little by little, we can build together and unfold into a new shape.
Also, please consider reading the “Meditation on the Spirals of the Nautilus” for further inspiration.
