IT STARTS WITH ART
This short documentary is my Media Broadcast Production Master's Dissertation project.
This documentary examines the power art has on us, why it can be an effective tool for prison rehabilitation and what it means to those who need it most. In this documentary we sat down with Stephen Greer, freelance artist who was a former prisoner. We talk to Stephen about his journey through art, how he came to turn his life around and dedicating himself to give others the help he was given when he needed it most. We also spoke to Fred Caulfield, head of Prison Arts Foundation about what the charity does to help people like Stephen, and talking about the psychology behind rehabilitation with Rebecca Ewing, a forensic psychologist who has spent years helping prisoners to make the changes necessary to reform.
