Sentenced for Life
Wyrok na Życie, Poland, 2009, 64 min, Digi Beta, Society
Moving documentary about imprisoned women. Each of these women has her own story, but they are connected by this place, they spend part of their lives behind the bars, sometimes prison becomes their home. They all dream of freedom, men, new lives. The film shows them in the moment when the prison ward is the whole world. But filled with talks of freedom, past and future. Freedom is a main subject: discussed with hope and anxiety. They are afraid of returning to their lives outside. This film shows ordinary women, who support each other and together count down the time until freedom. We are allowed to watch their everyday life, joy, sorrow and dreams.
