Kassel - Gefangene filmen   [Original Title]

Kassel Penitentiary - Inmates Behind the Camera   [Title Translation]
Country of Origin: Germany
Year of origin: 1970
Genre: n/a
Locations of shooting: n/a
The film, produced by inmates of Kassel-Welheiden penitentiary, looks at everyday life in prison, looking at the work the inmates do in prison and their earnings. The film contrasts popular ideas of life in prison with the actual situation of the inmates. It becomes apparent that the average citizen has little knowledge of life in prison and reintegration programmes. Answers to a survey are contrasted with footage from the penitentiary. Furthermore, the film shows how former inmates suffer from the preconceptions of other people after they have been released. Seeking employment is likewise very difficult.
