"Through the Door" highlights the faith community's engagement with prisons, including inmates and officers, being in prison and out, both charity and justice.
It also raises awareness of what some faith communities are doing on the prison front by highlighting stories in Nashville, Tennessee; Richmond, Virginia; Huntsville, Texas; Carlisle, Indiana; Atlanta, Georgia, and more.
Prior to appearing on SSN, the film appeared on Atlanta Interfaith Broadcasters TV network in May.
It has also been screened at local churches in Virginia, Texas, North Carolina and Indiana, with additional screenings scheduled in the fall.
"We're grateful that our documentary on faith and immigration has a chance to compete for TV eyeballs," Cliff Vaughn, media producer for EthicsDaily.com, said.
"Sane voices of faith don't get enough airtime, but Soul of the South is changing that," Vaughn said, expressing hope that EthicsDaily.com readers would share broadcasting information with their churches and networks.
