The Prison in Twelve Landscapes is a film about the prison in which we never see a penitentiary. 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 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.

 

Proceeded by FOR THEY KNOW NOT which was produced as part of the filmmaking collaborative Pens to Pictures, in which five films were written by women in the Dayton Correctional Institution and directed outside the prison with the help of local artists. For They Know Not was shot in the Cincinnati area in 2016
