Reentry in Motion: Prison’s Revolving Door
Ma
in Library Room 1

It costs $75,000 a year to incarcerate a nonviolent offender but only $5,000 to help that individual live productively in freedom. The film It’s More expensive to Do Nothing, explores the troubling realities that lie behind the revolving door of prison, the complexities of reform, and the frequent disregard for programs that can help returning citizens succeed in society. Interviewing more than 25 experts, the documentary also profiles nonviolent individuals who have turned their lives around after completing remediation and literacy programs. Reentry resources and handouts provided.
