Visit the Library for The Visitors

Thursday, January 15, 6PM, Main Library

Co-sponsored by the Albany Independent Film Forum and the Prison Action Network

The Visitors is a mini documentary following passengers of a charter bus that leaves New York City every weekend to visit prisoners in various prisons in Upstate New York.

The film reflects on the struggles of a unique group of people, mostly women who live at the intersection of confinement and the free world. The director, a former prison visitor herself, - follows the coordinator of the bus, Denise Robinson, whose husband is coming home soon after 17 years of imprisonment.
