The Land of the Free punishes or imprisons more of its citizens than any other nation. This collection of testimonials from criminal offenders, family members, and experts on America’s criminal justice system puts a human face on the millions of Americans subjugated by the US Government’s 40 year, one trillion dollar social catastrophe: The War on Drugs; a failed policy underscored by fear, politics, racial prejudice and intolerance in a public atmosphere of “out of sight, out of mind.”

The United States has only 5% of the world’s population, yet a full 25% of the world’s prisoners. At 2.5 million, the US has more prisoners than even China does with five times the population of the United States. 8 million Americans (1 in every 31) languish under some form of state monitoring known as “correctional supervision.” On top of that, the security and livelihood of over 13 million more has been forever altered by a felony conviction.

The American use of punishment is so pervasive, and so disproportionate, that even the conservative magazine The Economist declared in 2010, “never in the civilized world have so many been locked up for so little.”

The project will unfold over a two year period, beginning with the release of this feature-length documentary and then continuing on with the release of short films and complete interviews from each of the 100 participants in the project, meant to represent the 1 in 100 Americans that are currently sitting behind bars.

  • I absolutely will be staying away from Amazon. They appear to be solid but one needs to know what is really going on in the inside. I have been told by net workers that we need to fork into the online adventure of Amazon and make some good income over the holidays but at who’s expense? It is too bad that the human body has to be exploited at the hands of others who wants to save some time and energy running around. Christmas shopping needs to go because it is only the corporations that are running the world who benefit never the worker who is completely controlled. It doesn’t matter whether it is MacDonald’s Corp, Burger King Corp or Kmart Corp, their think-tanks all create inhuman rules to benefit the shareholders and enslave the workers and because they think they are too big to fail, their insurance adjusters keep the public safety from knowing the truth.. How can we get through to the masses?
