Alysa Nahmias - 2022 - 85m - NO MATINEES

While locked up for six years in federal prison, artist Jesse Krimes secretly creates monumental works of art—including an astonishing 40-foot mural made with prison bed sheets, hair gel, and newspaper. He smuggles out each panel piece-by-piece with the help of fellow artists, only seeing the mural in totality upon coming home. As Jesse’s work captures the art world’s attention, he struggles to adjust to life outside, living with the threat that any misstep will trigger a life sentence.

"It is rare to find a film that reflects its subject so insightfully, in both an artistic and thematic sense." - The Wrap

"An inspiring and infuriating documentary. Inspiring because, once again, we are reminded of the redeeming and life-affirming qualities inherent in creating art, and infuriating as a man falls into the prison industrial complex and the dehumanization that inevitably takes place there." - Film Forward

"Exploring artistic inspiration and resourcefulness under difficult circumstances, this documentary about redemption and reintegration is earnest yet inspiring." - Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue
