'AN EVENING WITH JEFF NICHOLS'

7 p.m., Trinity United Methodist Church. Free.

How's this for glamour? Little Rock filmmaker Jeff Nichols is flying to Little Rock from Rome, where he's presiding over the jury at the Rome Film Festival. He's coming to his hometown instead of Austin, where he now lives, because his mom, Joan Nichols, asked him to speak at her church as part of its regular Trinity Presents Performance Series. The program will cover the arc of his career, with Nichols talking about how he got into film and how he came to make his three highly regarded features — "Shotgun Stories," "Take Shelter" and "Mud." There'll be clips of each shown. I'm moderating the discussion, which should be mandatory for aspiring filmmakers. No one in Arkansas and few in the broader film world have received the sort of critical praise Nichols has at such a young age (he's 33). LM

  • A plan for Arkansas to get more out of the money it spends on corrections

    Arkansas's prison population is among the fastest growing in the country. The state now spends more than half of a billion dollars on corrections, a 68 percent increase since 2004, and our prison population, which increased by 21 percent between 2012 and 2016, is expected to rise by another 19 percent between 2016 and 2023 to 21,345. Those were the facts and projections Justice Center, a project of the national nonprofit Council of State Governments, reminded people of yesterday before presenting criminal justice reform proposals.

  • Arkansas criminal justice reform proposal due today

    We'll get a good sense of what criminal justice reform legislation might look like in the 2017 General Assembly later today — as well as some potential stumbling blocks to its passage. Justice Center, an offshoot of the national nonprofit Council of State Governments, will offer policy recommendations to the Legislative Criminal Justice Oversight Task Force this afternoon at the Arkansas Association of Counties conference.
