Description

Documentary Film Time Simply Passes and Conversation with Director Ty Flowers and Investigative Reporter Peter Gallagher

Time Simply Passes is a documentary film chronicling the life and wrongful conviction of James Richardson. It details the circumstances leading to his 1967 arrest for the poisoning deaths of his seven children in Arcadia, FL, his twenty-one years spent in prison, his miraculous release in 1989 upon the discovery of hidden evidence, and the twenty-five years he spent following his release attempting to obtain compensation from the State of Florida.

This is a film about race, about Florida, about the evolution of small-town justice, about forgotten historical moments, about systemic corruption at all levels of government, and a philosophical evaluation of the concept of restorative compensatory justice.
