AMERICAN PRISONS

# ( 18,889 )        86 min           2011    

Two young lawyers from dramatically different social and political backgrounds are appointed to represent prisoners by a visionary federal judge in Arkansas in the late 1960s.  This film traces the trajectory of their decades-long struggle for justice and the contemporary global implications of their victories for detainees in American prisons on foreign soil. 


Through interviews with attorneys, judges, prison administrators and through a powerful narrative that highlights investigative reports, we seek and come to understand the significance of bringing the treatment of prisoners in American prisons at home and abroad in line with the U.S. Constitution and international law.
