A Small Place

Rental Format(s): Digital File

A Small Place is an homage to those surviving solitary confinement and was inspired by the survivor testimonies collected by Jean Casella, James Ridgeway, and Sarah Shourd in the volume, "Hell Is A Very Small Place" (2016).

Particularly moving is the way individuals struggle with communication and connection, within the institutionally violent structure of the US carceral system in general, and solitary confinement in particular. The urge to connect does not diminish, but the person's relationship to time, touch, sound, memory, and story is strained beyond capacity.
