About FITE

FITE delves into the lives of several formerly incarcerated students at UC Berkeley, and their paths to success and higher education. High recidivism and incarceration rates in the United States are not a mere prison problem – they are a societal problem, affecting you, your friends, and your family as we speak. These stories in FITE are empowering, real, and, most of all, missing from the popular media space.

FITE will be screened in jails, prisons, and youth detention centers across the country, and is being created alongside an online database of regional and national programs that are available to assist incarcerated individuals upon release.
