Brooklyn Premiere of The Work

Directed by Jairus McLeary & Gethin Aldous | 2017

This winner of the Documentary Grand Prize at SXSW takes audiences behind the walls of California’s notorious Folsom State Prison and face to face with a group therapy session unlike any other. Over the course of four days, three inmates and three men from the outside world engage in an intense emotional exorcism as part of a program designed to benefit both convicts and civilians. As they delve into their deepest fears, traumas, and failings, macho posturing gradually gives way to raw vulnerability. For the prisoners and free men alike it’s a cathartic, soul-shaking event. And for viewers, it’s a riveting and disarmingly moving experience.
