Broken Systems

Film Synopsis

The impact of incarceration on a person is profound, often leaving traumatic, mental and emotional scars long after they’ve stepped out of a prison.

As Represent Justice Ambassador Twyana Davis shows in her short film Broken Systems, restrictive and sometimes arbitrary parole terms wind up extending incarceration, and make it easier for a person to recidivate. Parole should be a tool to help people successfully reintegrate into their communities, not another form of punishment.
