It’s Criminal

“It’s Criminal” is a powerful critique of the economic and social inequities that divide the United States. The film offers a window into a rural jail, an Ivy League college and what happens when these worlds collide. Shot in an intimate verite style, the feature documentary shares the life-changing experiences of female prisoners and Dartmouth College students working together to write and perform an original play about the lives of the incarcerated women. It delves into privilege, poverty and injustice, and asks viewers to think about who is in prison and why — while also sharing an inspiring story about how empathy is a powerful force that can help bridge the divide.
