Guest House is a documentary feature that captures a six-month period in the life of three women previously incarcerated for non-violent crimes, participating in a residential program as they reintegrate into the community. The house is full of diverse personalities driven by survival instincts. The women use humor and intelligence to deal with a broken justice system—a system that contributes to the recidivism of its criminals.
The film takes you through the reality of reintegration from the prison system and dissolves some of the “otherness” that can make us feel more comfortable with our justice system and illuminates just how unjust “justice” can be, and just how not “other” many of these women are as their hopes, desires, disappointments, and insights into their choices are shared.
Following the DC premiere screening, there will be a Q&A with Hannah Dweck, the film’s co-director/co-producer; Kari Galloway, executive director of Friends of Guest House; and others featured in the film.
