Love Lockdown (Nadia Hallgren | Bronx, NY | 19 min.)

Love Lockdown is a short documentary inspired by the impassioned phone calls and shout-outs made to prisoners on Lockdown Love, a popular late-night radio show in New York City. The film tells the story of Shoshanna, a young mother from the Bronx as she waits to learn the fate of Felix, the father of her children, who is incarcerated and faces a 10 year sentence. Dialing tirelessly, waiting hours on hold, Shoshanna’s phone calls tell an unconventional story of love and commitment, as she works to realize a life with or without the man she loves.
