Still Here is an immersive multimedia project exploring incarceration, erasure and gentrification that premiered at the 2020 Sundance film festival. The story is told through a composite character named Jasmine Smith who comes back home to Harlem, NYC, after serving 15 years in prison for killing her boyfriend in self-defense.
Crafted in collaboration with formerly incarcerated women and combining robust journalism with cinematic storytelling.
