 Schwenk, five Prison stories, 2011


five Prison stories relays 5 stories about life in prison in a relaxed, private and almost humorous
way. The work gives an insight into a way of living and area of society that most people have no
exposure to or experience with. The stories are told in the third person and are set against images
and footage of the inside of a prison. The film makes the inaccessible accessible in a simple and
highly engaging way.
