main quote: Washington: “During the program we learned more about the reality of the situation in our country. There are 80 million Americans with criminal records, mostly in black and poor communities. So here we pretend it’s a small community, secretive, that doesn’t need to be talked about – but we all are. If we weren’t part of the system itself, whether it’s the prison system or foster homes – those systems that tear us down and tear us apart – then we love someone who was part of those systems. That’s why it’s so important to make a show like this, but also that it’s fun.”

Deadline Studio at SXSW takes place March 10-13, where the cast and creatives behind the best and most popular titles from this year’s program at Deadline meet with the festival team to discuss their films and the paths they took to come to Austin, Texas. .
