Rikers

This film from Bill Moyers is the first documentary to focus exclusively on people formerly detained in New York City's notorious Rikers Island Jail. They tell their compelling stories direct to the camera, revealing the violent arc of the Rikers experience – from the trauma of entry to extortion and control by inmates, to oppressive corrections officers, violence and solitary confinement.
