Magic Labs Media, in collaboration with Director Cassidy Friedman, is helping to produce Soledad, a cinematic feature documentary. Soledad follows three inmates at a California prison who seek rehabilitation and redemption.
As the nation explores ending mass-incarceration, Soledad, a cinematic feature documentary, follows three inmates at a California prison who seek rehabilitation and redemption after their crimes.
- A former Crip, released after 21 years to parole in Los Angeles, battles a gang for his son's life.
- A recovering addict is freed when voters commute his conviction.
- A lifer – with no chance of parole – discovers he has the power to change prison culture from behind bars.
These dramatic trajectories stemmed from a radical experiment: storytelling circles guided by the inmates themselves. But is our criminal justice system prepared to support their rehabilitation?
