Sadly, we are living in an age where the prison system is an industrial complex. And despite that, there is still rampant violence, drug use, and other misdeeds occurring. And with the constant growth of privately funded prisons, it is harder and harder to maintain a common set of guidelines and policy that must be upheld. Our friends at Gravitas Ventures recognized the issue when they picked up the new documentary SURVIVORS GUIDE TO PRISON. Check out the press release below:
