are pleased to present

Mothering can be difficult at the best of times, but imagine trying to raise your children from prison. Filming in and out of prison over five years, director Jenifer McShane follows five mothers incarcerated at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in New York State as they work to “parent” from behind bars. While trying to nurture relationships with their children and play central roles in their lives, these women also face the day-to-day struggle of life behind bars. Mothers of Bedford is a deeply moving story about these women, their journey and what it means to be a mother.
