User Reviews

 
A thought provoking well made documentary
7 October 2012 | by Tony RomeSee all my reviews

Saw this film at the 20th Hamptons International film festival. Over 80,000 people in prison today are in solitary confinement. Herman has been in solitary confinement in a Louisiana prison for 40 years. Herman lives in a 6X9 cell. The film chronicles one individuals plight to build the house that Herman envisions himself living in if he was not in his prison cell. The audience gets an intimate look at the life of a man who has been incarcerated since he was in his mid twenties. The audience feels Jackies frustration as each attempt to bring Hermans dream alive gets faltered. Hopefully this film will find a distributor and get a wide release. The film is very well photographed, and edited. It is 90 minutes worth spending, a real eye opener.
