The haunting reality of prison
Unveiling the deepest roots of the so-called prison crisis: discover *Injustice*.
DURING THE LAST two years, prisons in UK experienced the worst riots in decades. Shortage of staff, violence between inmates, high suicide rate amongst prisoners, overpopulation: prisoners are on the first line to experience the aftermaths of the so-called prison crisis. The documentary Injustice dives into the criminal justice system in UK with the intention of unveiling its deepest roots.
Conceived by an ex-convict named Unsound Robin, the movie was primarily intended to be a movie made by convicts, with convicts and for the convicts.
This first intent slightly shifted, but Unsound Robin’s conclusion remains unchanged: “look hard and you’ll see it’s not that prisons are in crisis, prisons are the crisis”.
Contacted by Prison Insider, he shares his thought about the process behind the movie. What it means to make a movie about prisons with prisoners. How every stone fit to the right place to make Injustice come to life.
Injustice tells the story of us ghosts, it tells the story of the irreparably damaged criminal justice system in which it is the standards of justice that are criminal.
