SCREENING: THE WORK



After the session with documentarist Jairus McLeary we will show the whole documentary The Work.

The Work got 5-star international reviews and many festival awards.
Set inside a single room in Folsom Prison, three men from the outside participate in a four-day group therapy retreat with level-four convicts. Over the four days, each man in the room takes his turn at delving deep into his past.

"There are some documentary films that leaves an indelible imprint in you. When I first saw The Work, I had no greater expectations. But rarely have I been sucked into a universe and some fates that have affected me so dramatically. I am looking very much forward to hearing Jairus Mcleary tell me about this masterpiece in documentary," programchef at TV2, Thomas Breinholt.


Reviews:

Putting the viewer into a men’s circle like no other, The Work is a remarkable piece of reportage (Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter)

Opening an aperture into a process so ego-stripping that it feels unseemly to witness, The Work is enlightening yet also punishing (Jeanette Catsoulis, The NY Times)

Pushing its cameras past the gates, past the guards, and even past the imaginary emotional barriers its subjects erected years ago in order to deal with their personal demons (Peter Debruge, Variety)
