ABOUT THE SHOW

AMERICAN JAIL is a provocative, often deeply personal film by Academy Award-winning director Roger Ross Williams that explores what fuels America’s prison system. Williams’ investigation presents a range of stakeholder positions, and offers working examples of potential solutions, to address the ‘prison pipeline’ that criminalizes the mistakes of the poor and the vulnerable. AMERICAN JAIL premieres on Sunday, July 1 at 8P ET/PT.
