Tribeca Film Festival: ‘Blowin’ Up’ the justice system

Blowin’ Up
Feature Documentary
Country: USA
Director: Stephanie Wang-Breal
Writer: Stephanie Wang-Breal
In a courtroom in Queens, women facing prostitution charges may earn a chance at redemption thanks to an experimental program established by a team of rebel heroines working to change the system.

No distribution as of posting.

I’m not sure which is more absurd: the hoops women have to go through after being charged or the fact that the hoops came to being in the first place. Either way, the women who help are the real heroes. Helping people is more personal as we see footage inside a Queens courtroom.
