Equal parts politically charged and emotionally powerful, Time never lets you forget the humanity impacted by the prison industrial complex. The film follows Sibil Fox Richardson (also known as Fox Rich), as she campaigns for the release of her husband Rob, who’s serving a 60-year prison sentence in the Louisiana State Penitentiary for bank robbery. The film combines home movies and footage of her campaigns as she addresses the horrors of unfair prison sentences and the American justice system’s flaws. The film avoids being a lecture, balancing being genuinely informative about our justice system’s inadequacy and the personal emotional struggles this couple went through. Time is moving, powerful, and extremely compelling.
