Film still from On the Right Track

Recently Jason Harris talked with Noel Julnes-Dehner about her work as a filmmaker and her films, Coming Home from the Streets, and The Right Track. 

These films tackle the difficult subjects of human trafficking, prostitution, and re-entry of incarcerated persons into society.

“[In her films] People see themselves…’That could have been me…I could have gone that path…’ People’s lives are complicated, twisted, they make bad decisions, and you realize that we all make bad decisions, theirs just had those consequences [prison, etc.]”
