More people are imprisoned in the United States at this moment than in any other time or place in history, yet the prison itself has never felt further away or more out of sight. The Prison in Twelve Landscapes is a film about the prison in which we never see a penitentiary. Instead, the film unfolds as a cinematic journey through a series of landscapes across the USA where prisons do work and affect lives, from a California mountainside where female prisoners fight raging wildfires, to a Bronx warehouse full of goods destined for the state correctional system, to an Appalachian coal town betting its future on the promise of prison jobs.

There will also be a panel discussion with Q&A after the screening.

Established in 2012, London Ontario Media Arts Association (LOMAA) is an emerging non-profit, artist-run collective that focuses on providing underrepresented groups and individuals with resources, exhibition opportunities and support. LOMAA is committed to fostering regional media arts through dynamic programming that shares contemporary and historical Canadian and international artists with the London community. http://www.lomaa.ca/
