Stories from the Inside

STORIES FROM THE INSIDE

“Is this where I’m spending the next four years of my life?”

Life in prison is the focus of STORIES FROM THE INSIDE, a documentary about a group of young inmates in a maxi­mum security facility.

Made in conjunction with the award-winning team at Shark Island Productions, together with the charitable organisation Igniting Change, this is a documentary filmed, edited and directed by the prisoners inside the Youth Unit at Port Phillip Prison.

These young men have been motivated to tell their stories revealing the crimes that led to their imprisonment, the choices and mistakes they made along the way, the effects of their actions on themselves, their families and their victims. They discuss the harsh reality of prison life, the daily grind, the boredom, the depression, and their fears of rejection when they return to the outside world.
