This vérité-style documentary takes us inside the walls of Grand Valley, one of five federal prisons for women in Canada. Here, prisoners live in small houses, in an environment that is supposed to be more female-friendly than the notorious Kingston Prison for Women, now shuttered. The first documentary to go behind the walls of this new breed of prison, Life Inside Out features three unforgettable women over age 50, doing time in a system that can seem designed to frustrate and baffle. It’s a world where arbitrary decisions, bureaucratic ineptitude and a Kafkaesque parallel justice system control every last detail of prisoners’ lives.
