“The film will completely change your ideas about prison.” Mary Baines, Russia Today
2016-17 saw the worst prison riots in decades. Across the country the prisons estate exploded as warned by campaigners and prisoners. The flames of the riots cast a light on the so-called prison crisis. Look hard and you’ll see it’s not that prisons are in crisis, prisons are the crisis.
Injustice investigates the crisis, and delves into the world of prisons, crime and the judicial system.
Ex-prisoners, activists, criminologists and even prison governors tell us who the prisoners are and why they are inside. We hear what happens inside, and outside. Injustice asks what are prisons supposed to do and what do they actually do.
The film will be followed by a Q&A with the following panel :
The Director, Unsound Robin, is a convicted criminal.
