Screenshot 2016-06-03 16.23.42Women are the fastest growing segment of the incarcerated population, increasing at nearly double the rate of men since 1985. A new documentary film called The IF Project explores the reasons behind these numbers as it follows Seattle police detective, Kim Bogucki, and four of the women who participated in her writing workshop at the Washington Corrections Center for Women in Gig Harbor, Washington.

In partnership with the Seattle Police Department, the IF Project writing workshop is a recipient of a 2015 Second Chance Act Adult Reentry Demonstration Program grant.

The East Coast premiere of The IF Project will be held at the Brooklyn Film Festival at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 5, and 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7. For more information on current and future screenings, visit theifprojectmovie.com.
