Site: Prison Valley

, 7 June 2010

Want to know Supermax… the new Alcatraz? Then you’re more than welcome to visit Cañon City in Colorado. A town in the middle of nowhere with 36,000 souls and 13 prisons.

A prison town where even those living on the outside live on the inside. A journey into what the future might hold.

the Motel where you'll be staying

The Prison Valley website is a whole road-trip on-line documentary  produced by the French media (arte, Liberation & Franceinter) & Yahoo and specially developed for an Internet experience. An initiative we celebrate and we encourage to continue being produced.

You’ll have a privileged seat & voyeur position to discover this dark & depressing city, the future of a state-controlled society as they say? Where black people have 1/3 options to go to jail once in their life and 1/6 for latinos…. Hope not.
