‘More than just a prisoner’ follows the stories of prisoners and ex-prisoners who explain how learning in prison and after release helped them shape ‘pro-social’ identities and desist from crime. Some of those featured in the film will be on the discussion panel.
The film was produced in association with The Media Trust and Sainsbury’s as part of the Untold Stories series. It was made by volunteer filmmakers Will Francome (who also produced ‘In prison my whole life’) and Mark Pizzey.
Your donations will enable us to help many others become ‘more than just a prisoner’.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you there.
