Incarcerated men, film life inside these walls. From pre-production to post-production, the FirstWatch team creates every single piece ourselves while serving time inside San Quentin State Prison. In an effort to humanize incarceration, the series explores how accountability and rehabilitation open the potential for healing and restoration.
Works in partnership with incarcerated people, survivors of crime, law enforcement, and the community. Our mission is to reform and re-imagine our criminal justice system to be one of true inclusion and justice.
Brings you stories of life inside prison, shared and produced by those living it. The team works in San Quentin’s media lab to produce stories that are sometimes difficult, often funny, and always honest, offering a nuanced view of people living within the American prison system.
