More people are imprisoned in the United States at this moment than in any other time or place in history, yet the buildings themselves have never felt further away or more out of sight. A meditation on the prison and its invisibility in the era of mass incarceration, The Prison in Twelve Landscapes excavates the hidden geographies of the modern prison system by eliding any actual penitentiaries in its cinematic vision. Instead, the film unfolds as a journey through a series of prison-affected landscapes across the United States.
