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. Film reviewers have been deeply moved by the courage, vulnerability, and wisdom they show. 

The film also includes the voices of a number of Vermont leaders and advocates whose perspectives help give larger context to the children’s and family’s stories. Those appearing in the film include:  elected and state officials, educators, a law school professor, and a pediatrician.

A panel discussion will follow the film.
