Welcome to a special 58th New York Film Festival edition of the Film at Lincoln Center podcast. Today, NYFF Director Eugene Hernandez is joined by director Garrett Bradley to discuss her extraordinary new documentary Time. Bradley detailed the process of capturing Fox Rich’s tireless 20-year campaign to secure her husband’s release after he received a 60-year prison sentence for robbery. Delicate yet forceful, the Main Slate selection is an exquisitely stitched-together narrative of the strength and resilience of one mother of six that also functions as a personal perspective on the crisis of Black mass incarceration in America. Bradley also discussed assembling years worth of footage, doing justice to the family’s story, how festering systemic issues in the country have now been magnified, and much more.
