The Box" was nominated for a national News and Documentary Emmy in 2015.
Every year, thousands of teens are placed in solitary confinement cells
in juvenile halls, jails and prisons nationwide. This animation tells
the story of Ismael "Izzy" Nazario and the time he spent in solitary
confinement in New York City's Rikers Island jail. This story is based
on an investigation by The Center for Investigative Reporting and was
created using real audio from an interview with Nazario. It features
music from Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def, and is part of a
larger investigation on juveniles in solitary confinement. http://www.revealnews.org
