This fall Hulu will present a new documentary film about a woman who’s spent a majority of her life incarcerated. JACINTA debuts next month and today, Hulu shared the official trailer for the film.

What’s Happening:

  • Hulu has released the official trailer for the documentary film JACINTA about a woman who’s been in and out of the system for years and is struggling to overcome addiction.
  • The film is set to premiere on the streamer and select theatres on October 8th.

  • Along with the trailer, Hulu shared a new poster for the documentary which highlights its recent film festival awards.


  • “Filmed for over three years, JACINTA begins at the Maine Correctional Center where Jacinta, 26, and her mother Rosemary, 46, are incarcerated together, both recovering from drug addiction. As a child, Jacinta became entangled in her mother's world of drugs and crime and has followed her in and out of the system since she was a teenager. This time, as Jacinta is released from prison, she hopes to maintain her sobriety and reconnect with her own daughter, Caylynn, 10, who lives with her paternal grandparents.
  • Despite her desire to rebuild her life for her daughter, Jacinta continually struggles against the forces that first led to her addiction. With unparalleled access and a gripping vérité approach, director Jessica Earnshaw paints a deeply intimate portrait of mothers and daughters and the effects of trauma over generations.”
