On the Outside: The Year After Prison is a multimedia, cross-platform documentary project that begins as fifteen people from diverse backgrounds are released from prison in Connecticut. The project combines filming by the ex-offenders of themselves with professional documentary storytelling, incorporating in-depth news coverage and contextual analysis. The project will enable viewers to accompany just-released inmates as they restart their lives, and, through their experiences, to better understand the human and social policy consequences of incarceration.
