Show of the week: A Decade Behind Bars: Return to the Farm

<em>A Decade Behind Bars</em> is a sequel to <em>The Farm: Life</em> <em>Inside Angola Prison,</em> which was nominated for an Oscar in 1998 for its profile of six inmates at one of the oldest maximum-security

“It’s like a big plantation in days gone by,” says Warden Burl Cain of the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, more commonly known as the Farm. It is, in fact, a former slave plantation, and now is one of the oldest maximum-security prisons in the U.S., 95 percent of whose inmates never go home. In 1998, the Oscar-nominated The Farm: Life Inside Angola Prison profiled six of its inmates. Since then, two have died—one of cancer, the other by lethal injection. This sequel by the same filmmakers follows the other four over the ensuing decade, presenting powerful stories of joy and shame, rebirth and redemption.
