The Prison in Twelve Landscapes

Brett Story
Kanada, USA 2016
87 min

By taking an innovative and unexpected approach to the subject of mass incarceration, Brett Story reveals just how deeply entrenched the problem of over-policing is. The United States has more people in cages than any other country in the world. By the end of the film it is apparent that institutions designed to discipline and punish impact every aspect of our lives, even when those institutions are completely out of sight.
THE PRISON IN TWELVE LANDSCAPES is an impressive, genre-subverting work. It is neither an art film or an advocacy film, or perhaps it is both. It is intellectual and abstract, yet emotional and engaging. Shot by Maya Bankovic in a restrained and mediative style, Story studiously avoids the obvious in favor of the associative.
