IN AN IDEAL WORLD premieres
Online Screening & Live Chat on OVEE
“IN AN IDEAL WORLD makes the most challenging issues of American incarceration come alive. By telling the human stories behind the headlines, we come to understand the complexity of human behavior and the prospects for redemption.”
Join American Documentary, Inc. and the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) for an online screening and live chat of IN AN IDEAL WORLD, simulcast with its public television premiere from Emmy-nominated series AMERICA REFRAMED.
Chat with filmmaker Noel Schwerin and special guests as they discuss how challenges within prison implicate even those beyond the bars. Participants are invited to share experiences from within the trenches of the criminal justice system, share resources for all stakeholders, and explore why race, class, and public policy in prison matter for the rest of us.
About AMERICA REFRAMED
Season 4 of AMERICA REFRAMED curates a diverse selection of films highlighting innovative and artistic approaches to storytelling from emerging and veteran filmmakers alike.

The documentaries invite audiences to reflect on topics as varied as culture, healthcare, politics, gun violence, religion and more. Several episodes feature a roundtable discussion moderated by host Natasha Del Toro with special guest commentators and filmmakers.
In 2015, AMERICA REFRAMED won a GRACIE Outstanding Series award, and was nominated for an EMMY award as well as an Independent Documentary Association award for best curated series. In its first season, AMERICA REFRAMED received five 2013 CINE Golden Eagle Awards, and one Imagen Awards nomination.
