Angola Prison Hospice : Opening the Door

Link
Half of the 5,000 inmates at the maximum-security Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola are serving life sentences, and it is estimated that 85 percent of them will grow old and die there. Edgar Barens’s documentary examines one of the nation’s first prison-based hospice programs, a program that notably incorporates inmate volunteers into the care of other dying inmates.

Angola Prison Hospice: Opening the Door was produced by two former OSF programs, the Center on Crime, Communities & Culture and the Project on Death in America.
