A portrait of a woman at dusk

Ahead of the Oscars, our Awards Season Picks video series highlights the writers, actors and directors who are expected to emerge triumphant in April. Next in the series is Garrett Bradley

By Gisselle Babaran

Having won the US documentary award at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival for her feature-length documentary Time (2020) – the first Black woman to do so – film-maker Garrett Bradley sits down with The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg to talk about her Oscar nominated film. 

Time follows the life of Sibil Fox Richardson (also known as Fox Rich) as she fights for the release of her husband, Rob, who’s serving a 60-year prison sentence. Having witnessed a friend’s own struggles with their partner’s imprisonment, Bradley explores the impact that the prison-industrial complex has on the families’ lives. The documentary amalgamates Bradley and her team’s own footage with Fox Rich’s family home videos – a collection that spans 21 years. 

Watch the conversation between Bradley and Feinberg as they discuss the reason behind the film’s black and white format, the love story between Fox Rich and her husband, and what Bradley wanted to accomplish through the documentary’s themes.
