The film

Each year, over 600,000 people return from jail or prison to our communities, where they face countless barriers to employment, housing, and reintegration. The film explores the challenges of reentry and the role communities can play in reducing these barriers. Viewers will hear from four storytellers–George, Shaquan, Sing and Armando–who share portions of their life stories, illuminating the common threads that run through the experiences of many of the over two million people incarcerated in the U.S.

Screenings and Community Conversations

Please join us for an upcoming event. Events will include a screening of the film (~40 minutes), followed by a conversation between the audience and one or more of the film’s storytellers, local providers of reentry support services, and formerly incarcerated members of our community. Professor Elizabeth Hinton, who is featured in the film, will attend the November 4th event in Framingham. Attendance is free, but registration is required.
