ABOUT THE FILM: In a rare opportunity, Making Me Whole. Prison, Art & Healing takes the viewer inside prison walls to hear and see firsthand from women and men about the influence Bridging Boundaries has had on them. The footage also sheds light on the struggles that children with incarcerated parents face, and how the Judy Dworin Performance Project (JDPP), in partnership with social workers, helps them navigate their way using the arts to deal with their most often tightly held secret. The 30-minute documentary, filmed as a partnership production with CPTV, features the JDPP’s community partners articulating the value and significance of these programs, and the powerful transformations that come from continued support to those returning to our communities.
Films are free and open to the public. Light snack and refreshments available starting at 5:30pm and film starts at 6:00pm. Direct all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
