The Darkest Hour (2014)
52min · Documentary, News · 1 January 2014
We live in the age of mass incarceration -- an age in which more than 80,000 people are caged in confinement every day, many for decades at a time. Through intimate interviews with death row survivors and those who have experienced solitary confinement firsthand, 'The Darkest Hour' exposes the inhumanity of the U.S. prison system. Narrated in hip-hop and spoken word, this film is a call to action to create a paradigm shift: We will either be ruled by passionate cries for punishment, or we will heal ourselves with the compassion required to repair a broken nation.
