The winner of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival Award for directing, Ana DuVernay’s Middle of Nowhere is an elegant and emotional drama chronicling a woman’s separation from her incarcerated husband and her journey to maintain her marriage and identity. Through a chance encounter and a stunning betrayal, Ruby is propelled in new directions of self-discovery.

Alexis Hyder of Participant Media will introduce the film.

Ana DuVernay and Participant Media have been instrumental in moving forward the campaign to end predatory prison phone rates. The conference features two related sessions on Saturday morning: “Call Me (Come Back Home): Fighting the Cost of Prison Calls, part 1 and part 2.”
