After Now: Navigating Life After Prison

Event Description:

After Now (2018) is a documentary short film that captures the joys and challenges of navigating life after prison, and the ways that incarceration touches us all. Following three people, and their families, for a one-year cycle, the film captures everyday life in New York City and the complexities of what it’s like to transition from prison back into society. Weaving intimate portraits of work, family, and neighborhoods, the film walks us through Earl’s first day out of prison; captures Carlos’s relationship with his wife and three sons, after nearly 13 years away; and follows Joshua as he moves forward from his past.
