The Work

Jairus J. McLeary, 79 min, USA.

Set inside a single room in Folsom Prison, "The Work" follows three men from the outside as they participate in a four-day group therapy retreat with level-four convicts. The film offers a powerful and rare look past the cinder block walls and comfort zones and reveals a movement of change and redemption that transcends what we think of as rehabilitation.

“Putting the viewer into a men’s circle like no other, The Work is a remarkable piece of reportage.”
