Press Herald article

The Press Herald in Maine ran an article about ‘Solitary Nation’ where writer David Hench describes the documentary as ‘offering an unprecedented look behind the curtain to see how the worst of the worst behave in one of society’s most challenging environments….’ The inmates profiled in the film are said to be ‘at the center of an ongoing debate in prisons across the country about the effect of solitary confinement on prisoners’ mental health…. “It seemed to me there was very little hard evidence for that debate to feed off,” Dan Edge, the program’s director, said in an interview over the weekend. “The public was generally not aware of what it’s like in those isolation units.”’
