Trapped: Mental Illness in America’s Prisons
7 min (USA) – Directed by Jenn Ackerman

Ms. Ackerman, a photographer by training, produces her very first documentary on the important, often overlooked issue of the mentally ill in America’s prisons. Given access to a mental health unit of the Kentucky prison system, the result is a visually spectacular, haunting, and informative movie.
