ROBERT

Directed by Sarah Fleming and Joann Self Selvidge

This short film shares the story of a young man who is incarcerated at the Shelby County Division of Corrections. He was transferred to criminal court at the age of 15, and he's spent the past four years in adult detention centers as a youthful offender. His involvement with the Incarcerated Youth Leadership Program has allowed him to give presentations out in the community, under special supervision by SCDC officers, and with permission from the Shelby County Sheriff's Office. 

Audiences who attended the December 13, 2016 screening of 13TH at the National Civil Rights Museum got a "sneak peek" of this film before the feature. Its official premiere will take place in the first quarter of 2017. Stay tuned for details, and follow us on Twitter @juvenilefilm and Facebook.com/juvenilefilm for updates & screening times.
