The feature documentary ‘Arresting Survival’ examines the lives of previously incarcerated domestic violence survivors while exposing how the criminal justice system disproportionately affects women of color and women in low-income communities. While women are the fastest growing population within the prison system, the film aims to display the impact of the injustices of these women.
