LIFE AND MIND OF MARK DE FRIEST, March 13 & March 14, dir. Gabriel London, Documentary, Rated "R", U.S. English, 2015, 92 min.

         When a legendary escape artist comes up for parole after 30 years behind bars, a chance for freedom must be weighed against his infamous past.    Mark DeFriest's life is living history. At age 19, his original sentence was for a nonviolent property crime, but because of additional punishment for escapes, he has spent his entire adult life behind bars. DeFriest has survived 31 years in prison, most of it in longterm solitary confinement in a custom cell above the electric chair at Florida State Prison. He has been raped, beaten, shot and basically left for dead, but he has somehow lived to tell the tale. When he was sent to prison in 1981, five out of six doctors declared that he was mentally incompetent to be sentenced. They warned the judges that Mark couldn't learn better behavior and needed treatment. Instead, he was allowed to plead guilty, even at one point to a Life Sentence.
The Life and Mind of Mark DeFriest is a hybrid of documentary film and animation. The filmed portions chronicle Mark's life - from his childhood through a modern day parole story - while the animations reveal the hyperactive world of his mind - from planning ingenious escapes to the sci-fi prison universe he inhabits.
