Runtime: 81 Minutes


Fox Rich is a fighter. The entrepreneur, abolitionist, and mother of six boys has spent the last two decades campaigning for the release of her husband, Rob G. Richardson, who is serving a sixty-year sentence for a robbery they both committed in the early 90s in a moment of desperation. Combining video diaries Fox recorded for Rob over the years with intimate glimpses of her present-day life; director Garrett Bradley paints a mesmerizing portrait of the resilience and radical love necessary to prevail over the endless separations of the country’s prison-industrial complex.


Runtime: 9 Minutes

In a nod to Pathé News (now British Pathé) newsreel series that traditionally aired ahead of film screenings in the 1900s, BLKNWSREEL appropriates the newsreel format as an opportunity to reimagine the contemporary cinematic experience. Anchored by a unique approach to non-linear storytelling, the work offers a portal to an elevated state of awareness and a respite from traditional notions of Blackness as part of a special presentation ahead of TIME.

This digital screening is presented by The Underground Museum, supported by Amazon Prime Video, and organized in collaboration with Atlanta Contemporary in Atlanta, Rebuild Foundation and The Renaissance Society in Chicago, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and Project Row Houses in Houston, Eaton DC in Washington DC, Maysles Documentary Center and The Studio Museum in Harlem in New York City.
