Double sentence

Double sentence is a short film directed by convicted women within a community art project, in collaboration with filmmaker Alexis Fortier-Gauthier.

The directors chose to show one of their stories as an example of the process of social reintegration and the challenges that occur after finishing a prison sentence. In fact, it’s just the beginning of a journey filled with difficulties related to their criminal records. Daily, they must deal with prejudice; the main challenge, however, is to forgive themselves. How can they liberate themselves from the past, which got them imprisoned and caused so much pain around them?

Presented as part of the Art, Culture and Social Reintegration discussion
