I was inspired to make It's Criminal because I believe that one of the biggest issues confronting
the United States today is our increasing isolation and segregation across economic, political and
ethnic lines. I think this segregation leads to fear of and ignorance about each other and that one
of the most important things we can do is to break out of our silos and make deep and authentic
connections with those who are considered "different" from us. It's Criminal captures how
incarcerated women and Dartmouth College students make that brave attempt to get to know
each other and my dream is that they will inspire others to do the same.
