Mother's Day

POV Season 30
  • Short Film
  • 2018

Once a year on Mother's Day, a charity bus service takes children to visit their mothers in prison across California. Nearly one in ten of the state's children have a parent in prison. Many are unable to regularly visit their incarcerated parents because remote, rural prisons are often difficult to access for low-income families. Through this bus journey, Mother's Day explores the impact of mass incarceration on an entire generation of youth.
