CELLWATCHFILM

FACT #1

On any given day in the United States, 80,000 people are in solitary, with most in isolation 23 hours a day in a 6-by-9-foot cell with a steel door and no windows. No fresh air, no visual stimulation, no human contact.

 

FACT #2

Some Americans have been in solitary for 15, 20, 25 years or more. And like most layers of the American criminal justice system, solitary disproportionately impacts people of color.
