Film Presentation of 'Mothers of Bedford' with Commentary by Vilma ("Nina") Balmaceda, from Nyack College

Jenifer McShane's absorbing documentary takes us inside Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison just 32 miles from Nyack. The film provides unprecedented access to a little known community of women as it follows five inmates in their efforts to be engaged in their children's lives and to better themselves.

Dr. Vilma “Nina” Balmaceda is the Director of the Center for Scholarship and Global Engagement and an Associate Professor of Political Science at Nyack College. Born and raised in Lima, Peru, Nina has a law degree from the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru’s School of Law; and a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Notre Dame.
