The Kingston Canadian Film Festival presents CONVICTION
Directors: Nance Ackerman, Ariella Pahlke, Teresa MacInnes
Runtime: 78 minutes
Though overall rates of incarceration in Canada have declined, the number of women behind bars is rising. A powerful documentary that offers many insights about this crisis, CONVICTION is the product of a unique collaboration between the filmmaking team of Nance Ackerman, Ariella Pahlke and Teresa MacInnes with women facing daunting challenges inside and outside the walls of two correctional facilities in Nova Scotia. But even though many subjects’ stories are heartbreaking, the film presents many reasons for hope, especially as activists and advocates like Senator Kim Pate work to address the deeper reasons for the cycles that keep women trapped inside the system.
To mark our 20th anniversary, we’re launching the Live the Experience Fund that will provide tickets for local schools and community groups to attend the Festival and live the experience first hand.
