Three times a month, Daisy Gomez and her young daugh­ter drive three hours to vis­it her hus­band, Max, who is serving a 15-year pris­on sen­tence at a fed­er­al pen­it­en­tiary. This short film by Jen­nifer Maytorena Taylor, Vis­it­ing Day, is a snap­shot of the per­son­al and fin­an­cial tolls that in­car­cer­a­tion takes on pris­on­ers’ loved ones.

It is in­spired by the hour-long doc­u­ment­ary, Daisy and Max, which is avail­able through Novem­ber on Al Jaz­eera Amer­ica.

Jen­nifer Maytorena Taylor is an Emmy Award-win­ning pro­du­cer who also teaches in the So­cial Doc­u­ment­a­tion Mas­ters Pro­gram and De­part­ment of Film and Di­git­al Me­dia at the Uni­versity of Cali­for­nia, Santa Cruz.
