Pull of gravity

This powerful film chronicles the experience of three men, including filmmaker EL Sawyer, as they navigate life after prison in Philadelphia, PA. The film surfaces themes of mass imprisonment, impoverished communities, policing, and the challenges former prisoners face as they re-enter into their communities, which did not change in their absence.

Listen to EL's TED talk to hear more about his experience.

Blueshift was honored to work with EL and the Media in Neighborhoods Group (MING) to develop a screening guide and workshop curriculum for prison population and staff, leveraging the power of these intimate stories.
