Just Us Screening & Discussion

Q&A following film with director Nyjia July and the film's subject Joanna Hernandez.

Hub LA's monthly screening series, Hub LA Lens: Filming the Issues, presents a new documentary from filmmaker Nyjia July. Just Us shines a light on the epidemic of generational imprisonment through the story of Joanna Hernandez. A former teenage mother who spent many years in and out of jail, Hernandez co-founded the community group "Young Queens On The Rise" with the goal of helping at-risk youth avoid her mistakes. Her world is rocked when her own son is arrested for a serious crime, and the film asks the questions "How could this happen?" and "Was her work in vain?"
