Upstate Purgatory

23rd May 2018

The first of a broad selection of films I have chosen from Lee Phillips’ vimeo page. This film documents a short period of time spent with inmates in Albany County Jail in upstate New York. Over a thousand men and women are held here for up to a hear before their fate is decided. The interviews in this film focus on the reflections of the inmates as they ponder the inescapable reality of what they’ve done. Powerful stuff from a fantastic film maker, lots more from him coming soon.
