The Prison in Twelve Landscapes at Milwaukee Film Festival

September 18, 2016

Justseeds is a community partner with the Milwaukee Film Festival again this year. We are partnering with the film The Prison in Twelve Landscapes, which I am really looking forward to watching. The festival is always so great and a nice opportunity to spend time in Milwaukee’s historic theaters.

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 film about the prison in which we never see a penitentiary. Instead, the film unfolds as a cinematic journey through a series of landscapes across the USA where prisons do work and affect lives, from a California mountainside where female prisoners fight raging wildfires, to a Bronx warehouse full of goods destined for the state correctional system, to an Appalachian coal town betting its future on the promise of prison jobs.

THE PRISON IN TWELVE LANDSCAPES can be viewed in September 28th, 29th, and October 3rd. Click for Screening Times and Locations.

The Milwaukee Film Festival starts on September 22, learn more on the Milwaukee Film Festival website.
