On Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 5:30 p.m., the Double Exposure Investigative Journalism Film Festival will host the Washington, D.C., premiere of the film “Solirary” (Kristi Jacobson, 2016).
Though it is considered a form of torture in much of the world, the use of solitary confinement to punish and control prison inmates has grown exponentially in the United States, with an estimated 100,000 people held in isolation in prisons across the country. Filmmaker Kristi Jacobson spent a year delving into the lives of guards and inmates at Red Onion State Prison in southern Virginia to produce a revelatory film about an unforgiving world hidden from public view.
A post screening discussion features director Kristi Jacobson and investigative journalist Lisa Armstrong, and author Pete Earley.
