PRISONS,LA HONTE DE LA REPUBIQUE

Over-populated prisons, lack of hygiene, of access to cares, dilapidation, violence, suicides, scoffed dignity? For many years, the reports deploring the deficiencies of the French prison system haven't stopped accumulating. Nevertheless, nothing seems to have canged: it's a bit like our country didn't want to reform its prison conditions. However, since 2002, the number of imprisonments has kept increasing? Bernard George's movie frankly condemns the dysfunctions of our republican prisons. Built up around sensitive testimonies, archive images that seem to appear from another century, faithful reconstructions and speakers of an indisputable legitimacy, PRISONS: THE REPUBLIC'S SHAME proposes a seizing inventory of fixtures of the detention conditions in France today.
