Sheila & Joe Screening with Filmmakers

(released 5/12/2021)

Mark your social calendar for Friday, June 25th at 6pm. An in-person screening with filmmakers and film subjects present for question and answers after the screening will happen with safety protocols in place. The Bronx Documentary Center will present Sheila and Joe, a love story short film.

"Sheila & Joe is a love story that unfolds behind bars. This story is told through hundreds of letters shared by Sheila Rule, a former New York Times correspondent, and Joe Robinson, a man serving a prison sentence of 25 years to life. Despite a 20 year age difference, and undeterred by the physical barriers of prison, their love has unstoppable momentum. Intimate and nuanced, this short film visits the space between compassion and passion, revealing a man who transcends his crime and a woman who dares to break the rules."

Present for the film will be filmmakers Julie Winokur and Ed Kashi along with the film's subjects Sheila Rule and Joe Robinson.

The Bronx Documentary Center is located at 614 Courtlandt Avenue, Bronx, NY 1045.  For more info on the filmmakers, you can read their bios, RSVP for the evening and find the phone number to contact The Bronx Documentary Center with your questions:
