America ReFramed - Tutwiler

What is it like to give birth - and then be forced to say goodbye to your baby 24 hours later? To most mothers, it's a scenario that's unimaginable. But it's reality for the dozens of pregnant women behind bars in any given year at Alabama's notorious Julia Tutwiler Prison for Women. Tutwiler, a documentary short from FRONTLINE and The Marshall Project, offers a powerful and unforgettable window into the lives of incarcerated pregnant women - and what happens to their newborns. Directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Elaine McMillion Sheldon and reported and produced by The Marshall Project's Alysia Santo.
