Here in the jail house now. Documentaries about detention are largely about prisons in the United States and about our prison system
Detention something we know about in school. Indeed juvenile detention is the system that doesn’t include school. Kids behind bars because of Ice detention as part of our news. Jails and detention are thought of in our war on crime and war on drugs. United States has the highest prison population in the world, possibly in history. It’s business according to those who think we maybe are locking up too many people.
Our documentary search includes China’s prison camps, Guantánamo and crowded jail cells. It is a look at our system and, we hope, a look at better understanding of our problems and solutions.
