STORYLINE


Liz Garbus and Jonathan Stack co-directed this documentary, which explores life behind the bars of Louisiana’s notorious maximum-security prison, Angola.

Stationed on an old slave plantation, Angola is populated overwhelmingly by black inmates, and staffed by a white administration.

The stories of various inmates convey the injustice and futility but also the hope that is part of prison life. A prisoner puts forth exonerating evidence to the parole board, and another speaks prior to execution.
