ALARMED BY THE RISING NUMBERS OF WOMEN IN PRISON
...and inspired by the conviction of Senator Kim Pate, Conviction flips the narrative away from pop culture's voyeuristic lens and hands it to the women who are being
victimized, marginalized and criminalized in our society. Not another ‘broken prison’ film, Conviction is a ‘broken society’ film – an ambitious and inspired re-build of our
community, from the inside out. With more women in prisons than ever before, the film implicates viewers to question the status quo, and to consider a different kind of
society that better supports the most vulnerable among us.
A Sea to Sea production in co-production with the National Film Board of Canada in association with
documentary Channel, with the participation of Canada Media Fund, in association with Société Radio-
Canada and with the assistance of the Nova Scotia Production Incentive & the Canadian Video
Production Tax Credit.
This screening is organized and hosted by the Acadia University Faculty Association Women’s Committee with
support from the Departments of: Women's and Gender Studies, Sociology and Community Development.
