    Sorry for being a neurotic lawyer but you can’t be convicted of self defense…

    Looks brilliant though!

      Did u notice their skin color? Wouldn’t be the first time I’m sure…

      The whole point is that they were, in fact, de facto convicted for acting in self defense. The play on words in this title hinges on that exact, tragic paradox.

  4. I saw this at the ImageOut Film Fest and it was brilliant. Also got to meet Reneta, Patreese, and Terrain at the talk-back and spent some time the next day with Patreese. They are fucking resilient and incredible people and have been going all over the country talking about prison reform. I’m so excited this is getting a PBS and Logo premiere.

    Everyone should watch this film. Bring tissues.

    This looks heartbreaking yet fantastic. Thank you so much for covering it!

  8. Thanks for signal boosting this film, Maddie! I am excited to watch.

  9. So Gloria really wanted to watch this last night (because of this article) and so we had to find the right channel and figure out how to use broadcast TV so 1. wow, I didn’t realize broadcast TV could be so cool. 2. This documentary was fantastic and so heartbreaking to see the injustices these women faced.

    Thanks for covering this Maddie!

    Just a heads up in case anyone is still monitoring this thread. PBS is airing the film again this month. I just got a chance to see it for the first time as a result. And, it’s available online again (free) to stream through: http://www.pbs.org/pov/outinthenight/

    It’s really worth seeing.
