Enduring love and social justice lie at the heart of this poignant documentary about a single mother’s battle for the release of her incarcerated husband.
Fox Richardson has spent over 20 years campaigning for the release of her husband, who was sentenced to life without parole for a botched armed robbery. At the same time, she single-handedly raised six sensitive and bright sons.
Garrett Bradley’s (America) feature showcases her tremendous talent and ambition, deftly combining home video archive and contemporary footage of Fox and her sons, presenting a remarkably resilient woman who transformed from being collateral damage of the US penal system into an inspirational campaigner. Enhanced by stunning black and white photography and an evocative blues score, Time deservingly earned Bradley the Best Director award at the Sundance Film Festival.
An epic personal journey of hardship and hope, it reveals the devastating effects of mass incarceration on Black communities in America.
