APART (2020) Human Rights Film Festival 2021

Moving look at several women who are nearing the point where they will be able to go home and rejoin their kids. It’s a moving look that lets us see how they prepare themselves to go home and what happens when they get there. It’s a moving film that shows us the cost of putting people in jail, specifically for drug related crimes. 

Apart moved me.  I loved that the film is very matter of fact. Most films like this are very serious and focused, to the point you really don’t connect. However here the women are allowed to be human. We see them laugh and cry with the result that we come to really care for all of them.

This is a super film.
