In an ideal world( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

IN AN IDEAL WORLD offers audiences unprecedented access to Soledad Correctional Facility, allowing viewers to experience prison directly. As prison policies shift, explore through the eyes of prisoners and staff what change becomes possible. Shot over seven years with unlimited access, the film is an immersive story told firsthand, without outside experts or narration. A white warden at ease with authority, a separatist murderer and a black ex-gang member, all three men come from different worlds. Yet all have spent their entire adult lives in prison, sharing a culture that has, in just that time, institutionalized the American racial landscape in ways that we are only beginning to understand, and that may prove very difficult to undo. Each came into the system very young, learned the convict/cop "codes" from their groups, and over three decades gained power and influence in prison. At the same time, crime control in the U.S. came to rely almost exclusively on locking people up, increasingly and disproportionately people of color. John, Sam and the warden learned how to navigate prison's complex, violent and deeply entrenched, racially divided culture, but now they find themselves on the cusp of potentially radical change
