One Million Experiments is an experimental documentary film that showcases and explores how we define and create safety in a world without police and prisons, produced by Respair Production and Media, Interrupting Criminalization, and SoapBox Productions and Organizing.
What does safety in a world without police and prisons look like? What does it make more possible? Built out of Interrupting Criminalization and AirGo’s podcast of the same name, the half-hour film explores how we define and create wellness and reduce harm in a world without police and prisons. From a curated collection of community-based safety projects created in the midst of the 2020 uprising, One Million Experiments celebrates the work already happening to build solutions that are grounded in transformation instead of punishment and invites you to participate in the joyous work of liberation. We don’t need one answer to how we get free–we need one million experiments.
Through long-form interviews with movement workers across the world who have created community-based safety projects, 1ME expands our ideas about what keeps us safe, and celebrates the work already happening to build solutions that are grounded in transformation instead of punishment.
