Troop 1500 to Have a Sequel: Film About Girl Scouts with Imprisoned Mothers, by Ashley Lucas

10 Dec

In 2006 PBS’s Independent Lens documentary series featured a film called Troop 1500, which chronicled the lives of a group of Girl Scouts whose mothers lived inside a Texas prison.

This profoundly moving glimpse at what both mothers and daughters endure as a result of incarceration will now have a sequel, providing viewers with a sense of the long term effects of separation and prisons on two generations of women.  Click here to read an article by filmmaker Ellen Spiro about the upcoming sequel, which should not be missed.
