The Prison in Twelve Landscapes

Sunday, December 4, 2016, 7:30pm
Los Angeles Filmforum presents
The Prison in Twelve Landscapes
At The Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028
Filmmaker Brett Story in person! Los Angeles premiere!

Los Angeles Filmforum is proud to welcome filmmaker Brett Story in person for the Los Angeles premiere of her award-winning film The Prison in Twelve Landscapes.

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 non-fiction film about the prison in which we never see an actual penitentiary. A meditation on the prisons disappearance in the era of mass incarceration, the film unfolds a cinematic journey through a series of ordinary places across the USA where prisons do work and affect lives: from a California mountainside where female prisoners fight the regions raging wildfires, to a warehouse in the Bronx full of goods specially produced to meet the arcane regulations of the state correctional system, to an Appalachian coal town betting its future on the promise of prison jobs.

Brett Story adopts an ingenious, prismatic approach to her film about the effects of mass incarceration on U.S. society. - Variety, March 4, 2016
