About

Directing Award: U.S. Documentary

Fox Rich is an entrepreneur, author, and mother of six who has spent the last 21 years fighting for the release of her husband, Rob, who is serving a 60-year sentence for an offense they both committed. She is assured and committed to sharing their story. When their sons speak to growing up without their father, they do so with a softer vulnerability than Fox can concede to. But home-video diaries she records for Rob offer unfettered glimpses into years of longing, pain, and hopeful anticipation of reuniting.

Director Garrett Bradley returns to the Sundance Film Festival (Alone won the Short Film Jury Award: Nonfiction at the 2017 Festival) with her debut feature documentary, which bears witness to the work and rituals of a woman’s decades of resilience. Commanding observations are seamlessly woven with uninhibited family videos to craft a beautifully intimate family portrait that also reminds us of the systematic separation of African American families—first through enslavement and now through mass incarceration. Time poignantly confronts and challenges expectations—this is not a story of brokenness but one of enduring love.
