After Now – Video Clip.
After Now (2018) is a documentary short film that uncovers the joys and challenges of navigating life after prison, and the ways that incarceration touches us all.
Following three people, and their families, for a one-year cycle, the film captures everyday life in New York City and the complexities of what it’s like to transition from prison back into society.
After Now was made in collaboration with the New York University Prison Education Program (NYU PEP).
NYU PEP students shared persuasive speeches at an end of semester event at Wallkill C.F. written for their course in Speech Communications.
