Maine Film Center | Railroad Square Cinema presents

CINEMA IN CONVERSATION:

FILMS OF FREEDOM, CAPTIVITY, AND HUMAN RIGHTS

Sponsored by Colby Center for the Arts and Humanities and Oak Institute for Human Rights

Shown with “The Way Life Is,” MIFF24 Maine Shorts alum

Post-film Q&A with “The Way Life Is” director Sophie Nacht, University of Maine Professor of Sociology Brian Pitman, and Kayla Kalel, Penobscot County Jail Storytelling Project co-coordinator.

Fox Rich is a fighter. The entrepreneur, abolitionist and mother of six boys has spent the last two decades campaigning for the release of her husband, Rob G. Rich, who is serving a 60-year sentence for a robbery they both committed in the early 90s in a moment of desperation. Combining the video diaries Fox has recorded for Rob over the years with intimate glimpses of her present-day life, director Garrett Bradley paints a mesmerizing portrait of the resilience and radical love necessary to prevail over the endless separations of the country’s prison-industrial complex. “Time is an achingly beautiful film of perseverance and hope in the shadow of the American carceral system.” –Toussaint Egan, Paste.

(PG-13, 81 min.)

Free.
