A SHORT FILM ON IMPRISONMENT

I’m Still Ethan is a short film exploring the impact of imprisonment upon detainees’ partners AND CHILDREN. through one young boy's eyes we look at how life changes when a parent is put behind bars and there is no support system to direct the way or alleviate pain.

 

this story speaks for those who’re left behind at home, and often left out within their community. Exploring themes of discrimination, loss and identity for all those, like Ethan, who’ve had judgement thrust upon them and their childhoods torn apart.

 

Ethan starts to see himself through the judgmental eyes of their local community and wonders if he too is undeserving of freedom and safety.
