Many of you will remember Matt Glasby who came up to the Festival last year as one of our guest critics. On his recommendation we have The Work.

Set entirely inside Folsom Prison, The Work follows 3 men during 4 days of intensive group therapy with convicts, revealing an intimate and powerful portrait of authentic human transformation that transcends what we think of as rehabilitation.


Fascinating and deeply moving, this fly-on-the-wall doc about Folsom Prison's unconventional group therapy program packs a powerful punch.
