 “Invisible Chess” is a feature-length documentary exploring a deeply flawed provision of Ohio’s criminal justice system that has drawn little media attention. In 1996, Ohio changed sentencing procedures from an indeterminate system - 7 to 25 years, for instance - to a “truth in sentencing” scheme giving judges far greater control over time served.The new law has reduced the incentive for inmates to participate in programs intended for rehabilitation, and because the law passed in 1996 was not retroactive, inmates sentenced under the old law suffer disproportionately.
Jason Goudlock - African-American, Cleveland native, published author, prolific internet figure, and Ohio inmate #284-561 since 1994 - has been a victim of this injustice. His story reveals a situation so convoluted and daunting that Goudlock has called it a game of "invisible chess.”
