Maine reacts to SOLITARY NATION

In a Bangor Daily News article, prison officials, legislators and advocates respond to ‘SOLITARY NATION.’ And director Dan Edge shares his thoughts on making the film:

“What it boils down to is what are our prisons for? Are they there simply to punish? Or are they there to make us safer long term?” he asked. “I hope that if there’s one effect of this, it’s that what the warden is trying to do is also tried across the country. He’s trying to move his prison system and the system in general in a good direction.”
