Synopsis

Suggested to us by Matt Glasby, The Work is set inside a single room in Folsom Prison, it follows three men from outside as they participate in a four-day group therapy retreat with level-four convicts. Over the four days, each man in the room takes his turn at delving deep into his past. The raw and revealing process that the incarcerated men undertake exceeds the expectations of the free men, ripping them out of their comfort zones and forcing them to see themselves and the prisoners in unexpected ways.

Thanks to Cinema for All

Critics

open_quote Fascinating and deeply moving, this fly-on-the-wall doc about Folsom Prison's unconventional group therapy program packs a powerful punch. close_quote Matthew Turner
