“Released: When Does the Sentence End?” was produced by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for North Georgia. The film explores how citizens returning to society “continue to pay for the mistakes of their past while still holding out hope for the future,” according to a news release. The film highlights the employment and other barriers faced by former prisoners.
In late August, Gov. Nathan Deal attended the premiere of the documentary. Deal is one of two dozen people who are featured in the 45-minute movie.
