The new Dogwoof documentary The Work is heading to Brighton’s Duke of York’s Picturehouse on Weds 6 Sept. Labelled ‘Intimate, intensely emotional…powerfully underlines the ability of documentary to transport the viewer to places they would otherwise never encounter’ by Screen Daily, the film takes an in-depth look at a ground-breaking prison therapy which involves members of the public alongside inmates.
Wowing audiences at this year’s Sheffield Doc/Fest, where it made its UK premiere, directed by Jairus McLeary and co-directed by Gethin Aldous, The Work is an unforgettable documentary that will leave viewers moved and shaken in equal measure. Purely observational, McLeary goes inside Folsom Prison to document a four-day group therapy session between inmates and men from the outside. The result is a raw an intimate account of redemption and rehabilitation. The Work is in cinemas Fri 8 Sept 2017.
