Summary, etc.: What does the weight of time's passage feel like for a family caught in the jaws of a brutal carceral system? Both a breathtaking cinematic love story and a bruising indictment of American injustice, the Academy Award-nominated feature documentary debut of Garrett Bradley traces the decades-long quest of Sibil Fox Richardson, an indefatigable mother of six and a fiercely outspoken prison abolitionist, to free her husband from the Louisiana State Penitentiary, where he is serving a sixty-year sentence for robbery. Gracefully interweaving twenty years' worth of Richardson's own intimate home movies with luminously expressive monochrome footage of her present-day joys and struggles, Bradley crafts in this film a transcendentally poetic, soul-shaking look at the devastating toll of mass incarceration and one family's extraordinary efforts to stay whole.
