Doing Time takes a fresh look at the lives of women who have been locked inside the Canadian system. This is the video interpretation of a sculptural installation that was the result of a collaboration between four ex-inmates (Michelle Christensen, Geri Ferguson, Lyn MacDonald, and Bea Walkus) and Vancouver artist Persimmon Blackbridge. Through personal stories and statements, the women explore issues such as poverty, racism, violence against women, and the difficulty of rejoining society after a prison term.
