Yale Visual Law Project film

The Yale Visual Law Project is excited to announce the Yale Law School Premiere of its latest film, The Worst of the Worst!

After 15 months of filming, editing, and criss-crossing the state of Connecticut, VLP will share this 30-minute original documentary in its first-ever public screening.

YLS PREMIERE: The Worst of the Worst A Yale Visual Law Project film December 11 7:00 PM Rm 127

The Worst of the Worst tells the story of Connecticut’s Supermax prison through the individuals whose lives it has altered: a former inmate trying to rebuild his life but haunted by memories in Northern, a guard suffering from PTSD and the buddies trying to help him, a desperate mother on a mission to support a son at Northern who spends 23 hours a day in isolation. Through their stories and interviews with officials and advocates, the film asks who is really being held inside Northern, to what purpose, and at what cost.

Witness the stories, learn the policy, and bring your questions. The 30-minute screening will be followed by Q&A with the filmmakers. You can watch the trailer for the film here.
