October 9th, 2020 - 3:00 pm
Starting on October 9, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present “Time,” a gripping and very personal award-winning documentary about a wife’s fight to free her husband from prison.
Fox Rich is a fighter. The entrepreneur, abolitionist and mother of six boys has spent the last two decades campaigning for the release of her husband, Rob G. Rich. Rob is serving a 60-year sentence for a robbery they both committed in the early 90’s in a moment of desperation. Combining the video diaries Fox has recorded for Rob over the years with intimate glimpses of her present-day life, director Garrett Bradley paints a mesmerizing portrait of the resilience and radical love necessary to prevail over the endless separations of the country's prison-industrial complex. [2020, US, 81 min, Rated: PG-13].
Piers Marchant of the “Arkansas Democrat-Gazette” writes “It's a celebration of closing a loop that stuns you with its unexpected verve.” Sheri Linden of “Hollywood Reporter” says, “A vibrant cubist portrait, alive with shadings of Rich's vulnerability and the psychic bruises from dealing with an indifferent correctional system, expensive lawyers and unresponsive courts.”
Screening times are 3 pm on Fri (Oct 9), 6 pm on Sat (Oct 10), 3 pm on Sun (Oct 11), 2 & 5 pm on Wed (Oct 14) and 5 pm on Thu (Oct 15). Admission is $8 for members and $11 for future members. Customers are encouraged to purchase tickets online at rehobothfilm.com. If seats are available, tickets can be purchased at the theater starting 30 minutes prior to each screening.
