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?

As an associate producer, Magic Labs Media has connected filmmakers to influencers and advocates in the field of criminal justice; provided strategic guidance and support on the film's festival, outreach, and distribution plans; expert commentary for press and panels; press and social media strategy.
