‘DOING TIME – A WOMEN’S VIEW’
ANIMATED SHORT FILM RELEASED
Must watch! A NEW animated short released today, ‘Doing Time: A Woman’s View’ features writings by incarcerated & formerly incarcerated women from the Right/Write to Heal Initiative, a joint project of the Columbia Center for Justice and V-Day’s Beyond Incarceration Project, in collaboration with Rehabilitation Through the Arts (RTA) and Human Pictures.
Writings by the Right/Write to Heal Initiative’s Jonel Beauvais, Judy Clark, Leah Faria, Selina Fulford, Latisha Morris, Harmony, Betsy Ramos, Edna Sams, V-Day’s Beyond Incarceration Project Manager Roslyn Smith, and Cheryl Wilkins are included in the short film.
“We believe the time is overdue for women impacted by the justice system to tell their own stories, in their own voices, about how they experienced incarceration and what it has done to their lives on the inside and after being released, acknowledging the harm we have done and the trauma we experienced on our journeys to healing.”
– Right/Write to Heal Initiative
Through Right/Write to Heal, women share how they cope with the consequences of incarceration on themselves, their families and communities, with the goal of changing how people understand the impact of criminalization on women. Writing and storytelling are therapeutic interventions for people who have experienced loss and trauma, and can lead to healing, redemption, and intimacy when shared collectively and with others who have been impacted. The goal is to humanize the unique individual and collective experiences of women, particularly women of color, who from early in their lives face racism, violence, and structural barriers that lead to punishment and imprisonment.
V-Day celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the Global Activist Movement to End Violence Against Women, Gender Expansive People, Girls & the Planet with the release of new art.
