Sing Sing | Official Trailer HD | A24


Divine G (Domingo), imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, finds purpose by acting in a theater group alongside other incarcerated men. The way acting exercises and rehearsal set something in these men free is a vivid reminder of the transformative power of art. Based on the prison's Rehabilitation Through the Arts program, the film stars an unforgettable ensemble cast of people formerly incarcerated at the Sing Sing correctional facility. Their participation brings an authenticity to the group's founding principle that human dignity must be a part of the justice system. Directed with a dynamism that matches the charm, mischief and compassion of the men themselves, Sing Sing recognizes the value of a place we can gather in which to discuss, debate and create, wherever that may be.

D: Greg Kwedar, US, 2023, 1h45m, CC
