Mendal PolishMendal Polish’s research is for a film on transformative justice and radical healing models as they relate to the prison industrial complex. She will tell the story of her relationship to a former student who will spend the rest of his life in prison.  Together they are creating a piece that asks big questions of what institutional  and systemic interventions could have changed his trajectory, and at this point, what can healing and radical forgiveness look like?
