Echoes of Incarceration

Echoes of Incarceration is an award-winning documentary initiative produced by youth with incarcerated parents. The project explores the issue of mass incarceration and its effects on families, and creates documentary films told from the life experiences of the filmmakers themselves. The project seeks to train and empower young people to tell their stories and advocate for change. We create films both for general audiences as well as specific training and advocacy tools for stakeholders. To date, our films have screened thousands of times in universities, prisons, and national conferences, we’ve partnered with Sesame Street, Upworthy, and screened our work at the White House.
