Every weekday, inmates are released from Huntsville State Penitentiary in Texas, taking in their first moments of freedom with phone calls, cigarettes, and quiet reflection at the Greyhound station up the block.


Director’s Statement: Jamie Meltzer, Chris Filippone

With Huntsville Station, our goal was to create an experience that reflected a different side of the criminal justice system. We did not conduct interviews, hoping to craft an immersive sense of this moment, observing conversations and even just capturing the simple act of waiting in this pivotal time between prison and freedom. We sought to humanize those on-screen, capturing their first release of emotion.
