  • Feature Film
  • 2018

The Corridor​ shows the inner-workings and challenges of San Francisco’s Five Keys Charter School − the first high school of its kind in the United States designed to provide incarcerated adults the opportunity to earn a high school diploma to prepare them for successful reintegration into their communities. Enrollment is mandatory. For many of the students, the experience validates their humanity: they are respected for the value of their minds, and their opinions matter. The Corridor invites viewers to ask: is education the first step along the pathway to restorative justice?
