Time is a true testament to love and dedication.
The critically acclaimed documentary tells the story of a woman’s 20 year fight to free her husband. Time takes on a unique look, shown in black-and-white, it mostly uses content captured on home video. It cuts that video together with a glorious score to create this profoundly moving story of hope.
The film, directed by Garrett Bradley was selected for the New York Film Festival 2020 and winner of the Directing Award: U.S. Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival 2020.
There is no question that Fox Rich is a fighter. The entrepreneur, abolitionist and mother of six boys has spent the last two decades campaigning for the release of her husband, Rob G. Rich, who was serving a 60-year sentence for a robbery they both committed in the early 90s in a moment of desperation. Director Garrett Bradley combines the video diaries Fox has recorded for Rob over the years. There are also intimate glimpses of her present-day life here. In doing so, Bradley paints a mesmerizing portrait of the resilience and radical love. Those qualities are necessary to prevail over the endless separations caused by the country’s prison-industrial complex.
Time begins streaming on Amazon Prime on October 16th.
