# CINEMA /// Prison Valley by Philippe Brault & David Dufresne

Prison Valley is a documentary created by Philippe Brault & David Dufresne for the French documentary channel Arte (although the language is English). This film explore the urbanity of Cañon City in Colorado which owns thirteen prisons. Brault and Dufresne are thus investigating the American Incarceration system that is fully part of the normatization capitalist system that U.S. embodies. In fact 1% of the American population is currently in prison (as a matter of comparison 0.01% of the French population is in prison -not that the French prisons are better than U.S. ones by the way).
I here insert the trailer of the documentary that you can watch online on the official site.
