Generative AI: Using artificial intelligence to make human impact.Learn how

A documentary about how the right digital tools in the right hands altered one man’s life for the better.

Touching lives through digital transformation

At Publicis Sapient, we believe that digital has the ability to create profound human change. We’re proud to have TIME Magazine premiere our second documentary collaboration with Academy Award-winning director Ben Proudfoot, spotlighting how the digitization of the Los Angeles County Public Defender’s Office case management system has helped reduce the collateral consequences of contact with the criminal justice system. Told through the lens of his public defender and with the help of his family, we explore Johnny’s journey to seek diversion and treatment rather than incarceration. “Forgiving Johnny” reveals a rare and honest look into the criminal justice system and the power of tenacity, public services and hope in the face of adversity.
