The Work

Murderers. Drug addicts. Thieves. Gang members. Armed robbers. Violent criminals...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.

Wowing audiences at this year's Sheffield Doc/Fest, where it made its UK premiere, The Work directed by Jairus McLeary and co-directed by Gethin Aldous, is an unforgettable documentary that will leave viewers moved and shaken in equal measure. Purely observational, McLeary goes inside Folsom Prison to document a four-day group therapy session between inmates and men from the outside. The result is a raw an intimate account of redemption and rehabilitation. The Work is in cinemas 8 September 2017.
