Natural Life (work in progress) is a feature-length documentary produced by SAIC faculty Tirtza Even alongside the legal efforts of the Law Offices of Deborah LaBelle. The work challenges the inequities in the juvenile justice system by telling the stories of several individuals sentenced to die in prison since youth. The project's goal is to depict the experiences of these youths who receive the most severe sentences available for convicted adults—a sentence of "natural life" or life without parole—against the contexts of social bias, neglect, apprehension, and alienation.
