Moderated by Stephen Pope, Professor, Boston College

Screening of documentary “Unlikely Friends”, Leslie Neale, Director

Leslie Neale, Documentarian

Leslie has spent many years in the entertainment industry both behind and in front of the camera. She has directed, written and produced several documentaries but her primary focus is on social justice, specifically within criminal justice reform. Her award-winning film Road to Return, narrated by Tim Robbins, which aired on PBS, was presented to the United States Congress, prompting a bill authorizing 6 million dollars for prison aftercare. Juvies, narrated by Mark Wahlberg and shown on HBO, toured the world as one of the top ten “Human Rights Watch” films of 2005. Juvies also screened at the United Nations, encouraging the first ever conference on juvenile justice. Her latest film, Unlikely Friends, narrated by Mike Farrell, continues her passion to invite audiences to think creatively when addressing the problems of the criminal justice system that ultimately impact us all. Unlikely Friends is set to air on the Discovery Channel later this year.
