What is it like to give birth — and then be forced to say goodbye to your baby 24 hours later?
To most mothers, it’s a scenario that’s unimaginable. But it’s reality for the dozens of pregnant women behind bars in any given year at Alabama’s notorious Julia Tutwiler Prison for Women.
Tutwiler, a new documentary short from FRONTLINE and The Marshall Project offers a powerful and unforgettable window into the lives of incarcerated pregnant women — and what happens to their newborns.
Directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Elaine McMillion Sheldon (Heroin(e),Recovery Boys) and reported and produced by The Marshall Project’s Alysia Santo, Tutwiler will be available to stream spring 2020.
