Titicut Follies

The film is a stark and graphic portrayal of the conditions that existed at the State Prison for the Criminally Insane at Bridgewater, Massachusetts. TITICUT FOLLIES documents the various ways the inmates are treated by the guards, social workers and psychiatrists.. "TITICUT FOLLIES is a brilliant work of art…" - Robert Coles, The New Republic. "TITICUT FOLLIES is a great work, a near-masterpiece not just of the documentary form, but of moviemaking in any category. It’s a film that transcends the time and place of its manufacture, and it should be seen not just by documentarians and film students but by anyone interested in the movies as a medium capable of powerfully presenting the human condition." – Ray Greene, Village View

The Church: Code of Silence

Secret internal documents reveal how church officials have protected priests accused of pedophilia by moving them from country-to-country, sometimes as far away as to Africa. They call it ‘the geographical solution’. Even Pope Francis is implicated. When he was bishop of Buenos Aires, he tried to influence the Argentinean justice system in order to protect a convicted priest. From Cameroon to Argentina, America to France and Italy, this investigation traces the transfers of pedophile priests.

Solitary Confinement [electronic resource]: No Way Out of the Monster Factory

Across the United States, approximately 80,000 inmates are locked down in solitary confinement. The practice has led to Congressional hearings, UN reports, and even prison hunger strikes. Is solitary inhumane-and even a form of torture? In this ABC News program, reporter Dan Harris volunteers to spend 48 hours "in the hole" at Denver County Jail in an effort to find out. Over the course of his brief but intense incarceration, Harris has to cope with a total lack of privacy, lights that stay on 24/7 for security reasons, barely edible food, and a previously unimaginable level of boredom. "The worst part is the screaming," says Harris. "The sounds of my fellow inmates losing their minds was incredibly unsettling.

Prison Rape [electronic resource]: Part of the Punishment?

Kerry Max Cook was raped for 13 years while in prison; that DNA testing eventually proved he was innocent is almost incidental. In this program, ABC News anchor Ted Koppel reports on prison rape, a rampant phenomenon in American correctional facilities and a violation of civil rights that much of the public sloughs off as part of criminal justice. Interviews with Mr. Cook and other former prisoners reveal how, with the threat of AIDS, a prison sentence can mean a death sentence. Mr. Koppel discusses the issue with a panel of guests including Donna Brorby, lead counsel in a class action suit filed by Texas inmates, and former prison officials Ted Conover and Michael McLaughlin, both of whom have written books about their experiences.

Turned Out [electronic resource]: Sexual Assault Behind Bars

Narrated by Danny Trejo, Turned Out looks beyond the shock and inhumanity of prison rape to the intricate social hierarchy that keeps it alive. Filmmaker Jonathan Schwartz went deep inside Alabama's infamous Limestone Correctional Facility to uncover the long-term causes and consequences of prison rape. With a startling lack of inhibition, five inmates reveal the workings of an elaborate inner society. In Limestone, sex is the gold standard: men sell their bodies for bags of coffee or chips, and makeshift families are cobbled together out of fear and cautious love. Turned Out is the first documentary to capture prison life with the clarity of high-definition videography-and given the recent and severe prohibitions on filming inside many state prisons, it may well be one of the last.

Follow Me Down [electronic resource]: Portraits of Louisiana Prison Musicians

The old work songs have disappeared from southern prisons, yet a rich musical culture endures. Picking up where folklorist Alan Lomax left off, this documentary visits three Louisiana prisons to explore the role of music in the lives of incarcerated men and women. Filmmaker and ethnomusicologist Ben Harbert captures compelling gospel, rap, and R&B performances in a variety of settings, while his interviews with inmate-musicians-some newcomers, some long-timers, some set for release-provide a glimpse into the psychological aspects of an individual's prison experience. Most of the people Harbert speaks with reveal vulnerability and regret, along with a keen appreciation for the restorative powers of music. "I've been incarcerated for almost fifteen years for armed robbery," says Consue [...]
