After a year and a half, my latest documentary film Coming Home has been completed! Patrick Kennedy and I locked the picture at the end of May. 

Coming Home is a documentary film focused on five people returning back to their Vermont communities from prison. The film spotlights the innovative COSA program (Circle of Support and Accountability) that helps reintegrate folks back into their daily lives. The COSA program is run through Vermont’s Community Justice Centers. Coming Home takes an intimate and powerful look at this COSA process, the struggles and challenges of folks coming out of prison and the successes of the restorative justice model.

The film will premiere on October 6th in Burlington and will launch a four week tour across Vermont. See Tour Schedule!
