About the Movie
You're more likely to go to prison in the USA than any other country in the world, so in the unfortunate case it happens to you, this is the SURVIVORS GUIDE TO PRISON. Following the stories of two innocent men who spent decades behind bars for murders they did not commit. Gripping testimony from inmates, guards, staff, cops, analysts, lawyers and reformers, SURVIVORS GUIDE exposes the failed “punishment model” and examines the dramatic programs proven to work.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Matthew Cooke's assaultive documentary hammers away at injustices in U.S. justice system.
Fresh: A valuable primer for those estimated 13 million Americans who are arrested every year.
Fresh: Familiar but important points about our broken justice system, packaged for viewers who don't usually watch documentaries.
Fresh: Cooke crams in so much persuasively appalling information ... that it's easy to forgive him for seemingly trying to push all viewers' proverbial buttons at once.
So thought provoking
Everyone should watch this movie! As a criminal justice graduate, this is like nothing you will learn in a book. As a child, I always thought that if you were in jail, you were a “bad guy”. Now through schooling and documentaries like this and biographies have really changed my perspective on prison, punishment and rehabilitation across the country.
Que onda guey?
Nice film Don Trejo
What a powerful message of the system we allow as citizens to happen. This isn’t a movie, it’s the start of a movement.
