About the film: "The Released", produced by Miri Navasky and Karen O'Conner for PBS Frontline, focuses on the cyclical release and re-incarceration of people with mental disabilities in the U.S.

About the series: As we navigate urgent public health, racial and economic challenges, we recognize a continuing need for education and dialogue about vital social questions. "Imagining Change: Film and Dialogue About Disability, Racism, Violence, Gender and Power" engages issues of disability, race and racism, healthcare, violence, policing and incarceration, economic justice, law and policy, gender and sexual politics, protest, and social change.
