There aren’t many people who want to go to prison. Not on purpose, not by accident, not even if they deserve it.
Loss of liberty, loss of freedom, loss of privacy, loss of choice – and let’s not even talk about the whole idea of showers and toilets.
And yet it’s hard not to be curious about the experience. I’m not talking about Lindsay Lohan or Nicole Ritchie doing a few hours of jail time or even Paris spending a few weeks in the LA County Sheriff’s Hilton.
Rasha Drachkovitch takes film crews where few of us want to go: the most dreaded prisons in the world. As producer of the MSNBC documentary series Lockup – now in its seventh season – he has been everywhere from San Quentin to maximum security prisons in Moscow and China.

I was wondering if i could purchase a specific interview with an inmate. He was on Utah State Prison. He’s a dear friend of mine and I was denied visiting. SO your interview would be the only thing I would have to see him.
I spent 10 years in California prisons and know the Pelican Bay SHU personally. I wrote a drug war novel Roll Call by Glenn Langohr to show the public the path we are on by incarcerating petty criminals is only breeding bigger ones who are displaced from society when they are released. The U.S is not the leaders of the free world; we are the leaders of the incarcerated world! I started http://www.lockdownpublishing.com when I got out of prison to help other prisoners change their lives through writing. I pray more people stand up and look at the five demands asking for humane treatment! http://youtu.be/jEQ8Gh1-bFs Here is the NY Review Kirkus Discoveries, Nielsen Business Media
A harrowing, down-and-dirty depiction—sometimes reminiscent of Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic—of America’s war on drugs, by former dealer and California artist Langohr.
I’m also writing over 50 California prisoners to inspire them to turn their lives around through writing. I want interviews and publicity as I am broke out of prison and can’t afford the regular channels…
