The Prison in Twelve Landscapes Film Poster


Director: Brett Story. Canada/USA. 2016. 84 min. Plus director Q&A More people are currently incarcerated in America than at any other point in history. These prisoners are near invisible to us and yet Brett Story’s masterful eye finds their presence on the landscape far beyond prison walls. From Californian wildfires tackled by female prisoners, to the boy from the Bronx running a business stocking prison-certified goods for families to send their loved ones, the film exposes and observes those previously imperceptible traces left all over the states of America. In the devastatingly beautiful and contrasting scenery only the USA can produce, the film’s twelve tableaux reveal the experience of prison in the places we least expect to find it.
