Media Studies Alumna Inés Vogelfang Launches Kickstarter for Film, CHAINS
Inés Vogelfang, editor of CHAINS, recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for their film.
CHAINS is a brutally honest portrait of life after wrongful conviction, seen through the eyes of Barry Gibbs, a larger-than-life character who was framed for murder by Mafia Cops in the most notorious case of NYPD corruption.
Equally humorous as it is heartbreaking, Barry’s story is one of trauma, redemption, and survival of the human spirit for a man who emerged from prison, and spent a decade searching for closure, only to find that the loss of freedom can never be undone.
Picking up where every other wrongful conviction story leaves off, this raw and unfiltered narrative, shot over the course of a decade, forces the audience to walk in Barry’s shoes because to truly understand this surreal experience is to live it – day after day and over time.
CHAINS is directed by Zoe Potkin and executively produced by Katie Couric, Tony Goldwyn. Samaar Hamri, and Alan Newton.
