Best Feature Documentary, 2017
Beyond the Wall (USA, 75 min)
Directed by Jenny Phillips & Bestor Cram
Through the personal stories of six former prisoners documented over four years, Beyond the Wall bears witness to the challenges of life on the outside. Our characters are in transition; they must relinquish their old lives and build new ones often with little help from the criminal justice system. This film is an intimate portrait of their struggle, their reentry, relapse, recovery and redemption.
