It was so fun to collaborate with one of my favorite directors, Elaine McMillion Sheldon, on this intimate look inside one of America’s most notorious prisons to examine the challenges of housing the growing population of incarcerated pregnant women.
We filmed the Ice on Fire Winter Festival in North Branch Nature Center in Montpelier, Vermont last weekend as part of a project for Montpelier Alive. It was lots of fun and we’re working on a little video of the event to give them for promotion. The “blanket toss” was so much fun I put together a little teaser.
