SHORTS IN COMPETITION: DOCUMENTARY

NOT SACKS

Directed by Fiona Collins
SHORT DOCUMENTARY 9 Minutes International Premiere
FILM GUIDE NOT SACKS
A group of prisoners serving varying sentences for a variety of crimes attends a night class every Tuesday in HMP Wandsworth, where they learn the sedate art of patchwork and quiltmaking. For many of them, this newfound hobby has become a calming, meditative pastime that takes their minds off the day-to-day monotony of prison life and gives them something to look forward to every day.
