“The BHERC short film showcase will offer an engaging, fully online experience featuring films created by female filmmakers of African American descent. The showcase offers an opportunity for emerging black female directors to share their skills, talent and vision through film screenings, while giving the audience a chance to view and discuss the artistry, passion and sacrifice involved in the independent film making process.

“Compassionate Release is a largely unfamiliar prison program that enables elderly and terminally ill inmates to obtain parole. The objective is to expedite medical treatment that meets accepted standards of care. The many unknown voices of inmates and their grieving families often fall on deaf ears, and tragically, death comes prior to release being granted.

Trailer for Compassionate Release – The Ravages Of Time:

“The film captures the story of Carol, played by renowned actor, dancer, singer and Broadway veteran Stephanie Pope, a mother who is raising her twin daughters Janet and Jasmine after the death of their father and husband. The sisters, once inseparable, take different paths that lead to heartbreak.

“Janet goes to a prestigious university, while Jasmine falsely confesses to a petty crime she did not commit in order to spare her boyfriend the long sentence for repeat offenders.

“Rather than getting a slap on the wrist, Jasmine is found guilty and imprisoned. There, she develops rapidly progressing kidney failure and becomes terminally ill. As Carol fights to bring Jasmine home, Janet, once self-involved, leans in to help.
