Injustice: Llanelli screening
2016-17 saw the worst prison riots in decades. Across the country the prisons estate exploded as campaigners and prisoners had predicted. A light was shone on the so-called prison crisis. In Injustice it’s not that prisons are in crisis, prisons are the crisis.
A film maker decided to chart the current state of prison and the criminal justice system. Injustice tells the story of the system through the the stories of prisoners, their families, and prison workers, interwoven with research and analysis by campaigners and academics. We hear of life before prison, alienation, crime and confinement, and the consequences they hold for all of us.
