More people are imprisoned in the United States at this moment than in any other time or place in history, yet  the prison itself has never felt further away or more out of sight. The Prison in Twelve Landscapes is a film about the prison in which we never see a penitentiary. Instead, the film unfolds as a cinematic journey through a series of landscapes across the USA where prisons do work and affect lives, from a California mountainside where female prisoners fight raging wildfires, to a Bronx warehouse full of goods destined for the state correctional system, to an Appalachian coal town betting its future on the promise of prison jobs.

Panel discussion with filmmaker, Brett Story, and community leaders from POWER NE, the Coalition Against Death By Incarceration (CADBI) and others.

Co-sponsors:  Southside Initiative, Southside Film Institute
