A conversation with the filmmakers of Sons & Daughters of the Incarcerated

Sons and Daughters of the Incarcerated is a feature documentary that explores parental incarceration through the eyes of three boys – Tre, Maison, and Dasan. Following their interweaving trajectories through boyhoods marked by the criminal justice system and told directly through the child’s perspective, the film unveils the challenges of growing up and what it means to become a man in America. Documentary filmmakers Rebecca Stern and Denali Tiller join Deputy Superintendent of the Rhode Island Training School Peter Slom in conversation about the prison system’s effect on the incarcerated and their children. An excerpt of the film will be shown.
