Title: Lockdown in Lockup
Writer: Daniel Gross
Director: Joe Richman

Abstract: In a pandemic, prison is one of the worst places a person could be. Social distancing is almost impossible. Prisons are often overcrowded – bathrooms and public spaces are shared by hundreds of people. Guards are constantly going in and out. Robbie Pollock spent 8 years in New York state prisons. Recently, he spoke with his friend Moe Monsuri, who has been incarcerated since 2007. Moe is serving his time at Sing Sing, a maximum security prison in upstate New York, where four people have died of COVID-19.

Love at First Quarantine (Radio/Audio Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Love at First Quarantine
Writer: Joe Richman
Director: Joe Richman
Producer: Joe Richman
Abstract: The psychotherapist Esther Perel recently said that disasters operate like “relationship accelerators.” They cause both a spike in divorce and a spike in marriages and babies. Most of us are hunkering down with people we already have some sort of relationship with, but a few people have chosen to hunker down with practical strangers. Gali Beeri is 37 and works as an executive assistant. Joshua Boliver is 42 and does visual effects for movies. They both live in New York City. In March, as the city was preparing to lock down, they made the unlikely decision to quarantine together after their very first date.
