Trailer: Amazon Studios’ Time heads to London Film Festival
James R | On 07, Oct 2020
Time, Garrett Bradley’s award-winning documentary, heads to the London Film Festival this week.
The film, which was acquired by Amazon Studios earlier this year, centres on Fox Richardson, an entrepreneur, abolitionist and mother of six boys, who has spent two decades tirelessly fighting for the release of her husband Robert, who is serving a 60-year prison sentence, with no parole. The film bears witness to the ingrained racism of American society, the vastly disproportionate penalties for black offenders and the repercussions for their families and communities. Interwoven with 20 years of intimate home movie footage, Bradley, who has previously won awards for her short films, has crafted a portrait that also highlights the systematic separation of African American families, first through enslavement and today, through mass imprisonment.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Best Director award, and has since gone on to win the Golden Eye Documentary Film Award at the Zurich Film Festival. It will premiere at the London Film Festival in cinemas at 8pm on 9th October, with screenings following in cinemas across the UK. It will also stream virtually on BFI Player at 2.10pm on 11th October.
Time will then go on to be released worldwide on Amazon Prime Video on 16th October.
