First Degree (Dir. Roger Weisberg, 2015)

Managed the community screenings campaign, including social media, and wrote and produced communications materials including Screening Toolkit and a Viewer Guide for this award-winning film.

Synopsis: The expression “sent up the river” was coined by convicts who were sent up the Hudson River to do their time at the infamous Sing Sing Correctional Facility in Ossining, New York. FIRST DEGREE finds hope in this seemingly hopeless place by investigating an unusual college behind bars that is successfully preventing Sing Sing inmates from being sent back up the river after their release.
