STEP TO THE LINE

USA, 2017 (MIFF 2017, Virtual Reality)

Director: Ricardo Laganaro

STEP TO THE LINE

Shot entirely on location in California maximum security prisons, Step to the Line is a virtual reality documentary that aims to provoke a new way of thinking about prisoners, and the prison system. It looks at how release from incarceration can be just as jarring as intake and how parallel lives diverge when someone serves time.
