The public is invited to a public screening of Brad Salon’s new documentary film, Downstream: The Effects Of Parental Incarceration. The film will be shown on Monday, Oct. 7 at 6 p.m. at Catamount Arts in St. Johnsbury, and will be followed by a discussion.
Most discussions about criminal justice reform focus on the adults in the system. Very rarely do we get a chance to see up close and personal how children are impacted. Downstream is a one-hour documentary film featuring the compelling stories of those left behind when a parent goes to prison. Vermont children and caregivers share their experiences, revealing the complex and emotional terrain they navigate in the wake of a parent’s incarceration.
