Sex Offender Project

fiscally sponsored project by the International
Documentary Association

Sex Offender Doc
This as yet untitled project is the first-ever feature length documentary film about convicted sex offenders transitioning out of prison and back into communities. We follow multiple offenders from Washington State through their last days of treatment and their re-entry into society, one perilous landlord who agrees to rent to offenders, and the team of Corrections specialists tasked with keeping the men and women in line. The offenders struggle to balance parole, therapy, mandatory lie-detector tests, finding employment and permanent housing, and avoiding triggers that could push them to re-offend – all while citizens across the state say “we don’t want you - not in our neighborhoods.”
