Notes sur P4W: Prison for Women


Citation de la réalisatrice [en anglais]

« There were about 100 inmates. We met with them maybe half a dozen times before we started to shoot. We really got to know a lot of the inmates, and we researched their crimes very well. There were about sixty women who wanted to be in the film; we narrowed the list to half a dozen people that we really wanted to focus on. »
-- Janis Cole (source)

Citations sur P4W: Prison for Women [en anglais]

« The unobtrusive style of the film [P4W: Prison for Women] is perfectly suited to the brutal honesty of the inmates' stories. Mixing cinéma-vérité with interviews, the filmmakers created a poignant picture of a group of women struggling to maintain their individuality, their sanity, and their closest relationships. »
-- Wyndham Wise (source)

« Although the directors see their film [P4W: Prison for Women] as being primarily about the inmates' spirit of survival, a firm feminist voice emerges more strongly. We don't see any men in the film, but enough men are bitterly mentioned to make the prison signify the oppression and restriction of the patriarchal macrocosm. »
-- Maurice Yacowar (source)
