Solitary Confinement: Torture in Your Backyard
The 20-minute film "Solitary Confinement: Torture in Your Backyard" was produced by the National Religious Campaign Against Torture to give a voice to the thousands of prisoners held in solitary confinement cells across the United States. You will hear from survivors of solitary confinement, including Sarah Shourd, one of three American hikers arrested in Iran, who was held in solitary confinement for 14 months. You will also hear how the religious community in Maine took action that helped secure a 70% reduction in the number of Maine prisoners held in solitary confinement.
