SOLITARY: a short film exploring the psychology of an inmate being kept in long-term isolation in a prison's solitary confinement unit.
SOLITARY is, at its core, an exploration of the well-hidden world of solitary confinement, both the experience and the institution. The narrative stays with one inmate, serving a sentence for a nonviolent crime, as he is placed into the SHU for multiple years of confinement. As storytellers, we aim to craft a story that dives deep into his psychological and emotional state as he struggles to endure his long-term isolation. With your help, we can tell this story and bring this world, especially our inmate's cell, to life with every haunting and powerful detail -- from the echoing screams of agony that surround the cell to the bloody fingerprints that our inmate presses on his wall to mark each passing day in isolation.
