Garrett Bradley on Bringing A Prison Separation Story in Time Documentary

Hundreds of thousands of families are separated by thick walls that we call prisons.

Some people are imprisoned for the crimes they are punished in their lives. Many others are serving prison sentences beyond what they deserved.

For the Rich family, it was a twenty-one-year battle with the Angola State Prison that challenged the love between Fox and Rob as a couple. Fox Rich raised the children on her own while making appeals for her husband to be freed. Rob Rich prays and waits for the day to walk free and love his family once again.

Director Garrett Bradley won the directing award for U.S. documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival for Time documentary. Notably, she became the first black woman to win the award. Also, the film was a selection at this year’s New York Film Festival.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Fox Rich is a fighter. The entrepreneur, abolitionist, and mother of six boys have spent the last two decades campaigning for the release of her husband, Rob G. Rich, who is serving a 60-year sentence for a robbery they both committed in the early 90s in a moment of desperation. Combining the video diaries Fox has recorded for Rob over the years with intimate glimpses of her present-day life, director Garrett Bradley paints a mesmerizing portrait of the resilience and radical love necessary to prevail over the endless separations of the country’s prison-industrial complex.
