Justin’s Speech after receiving the grant:
I am honored to be the recipient of the ISF National Film Grant. The grant will assist me in completing my film, telling the stories of millions of Americans who have been incarcerated and the power of faith. It is refreshing to see an organization such as ISF, prioritizing the medium of film and supporting our unique voices. I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart.
