Following its highly acclaimed cinema release Jairus McLeary and Gethin Aldous’ award-winning feature documentary The Work arrives on UK DVD on 27 November 2017 and we have two copies to win courtesy of Dogwoof.
California's notorious Folsom Prison – immortalised by Johnny Cash – houses some of the toughest inmates in the US prison system. But it has also become the site of a groundbreaking experiment that offers its prisoners a sense of hope – and helps those from the outside world make sense of their lives too.
This unique four-day group therapy session is charted in The Work, a remarkable film that looks in on prisoners and civilians going through an intense session that is as mentally tough as Folsom is physically brutal. And as vicious and merciless as this world is, the sessions offer prisoners and those from outside the walls a chance at rehabilitation, redemption and saviour.
