Downstream: A Documentary Film by Brad Salon
Dartmouth Hitchcock Health is the co-sponsor of Downstream: The Effects of Parental Incarceration.
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.
The film features the voices of a number of Vermont leaders and advocates whose perspectives help give larger context to the children's and families' stories. Those appearing in the film include elected and state officials, educators, a law school professor, and a pediatrician. A discussion will follow the film.
