NEW FROM WOMEN MAKE MOVIES! MOTHERS OF BEDFORD

MOB
"This is an absorbing and timely film. MOTHERS OF BEDFORD confronts crucial issues facing the American criminal justice system... I highly recommend it!" -John Biaggi, Human Rights Watch Film Festival
 
Women represent the fastest-growing U.S. prison population today. 80% of these inmates are mothers of school-age children. Shot over the course of four years,  MOTHERS OF BEDFORD follows five incarcerated women from Bedford Hills Correctional Facility and offers unprecedented access to this community of women, as they strive to "parent" from behind bars with the support of an innovative children's center that helps to create positive change in the least likeliest of settings: prison. Read more and view the trailer.
