National Geographic Americas Hardest Prisons Mexican Lockdown ( 2010 )
Nuevo Laredo lies a few miles south of the US-Mexico border, across the Rio Grande from Texas. It's a hot spot in the drug war - a border town known for its chilling violence and rampant corruption. And it's the perfect home for a notoriously violent Mexican prison known as Cedes. In 2005, two American brothers jailed on homicide charges were stabbed to death in their cells. Only a month before that, a gang shootout on a basketball court left one inmate dead and several injured. The next day, two other inmates were stabbed to death and one was shot, caught in a barrage of 30 bullets. Guards later recovered six pistols and an AK-47 in inmate cells. Many of the inmates here are members of drug cartels and gangs like the Mexican Mafia. At Cedes, nobody ever talks 'politics' or about violence behind bars. To do so would be to risk reprisals. A substantial number of prisoners here have served time in both American and Mexican prisons and many prefer life at Cedes, largely because of the astonishing amount of freedom they are given. The novel visitation policy allows inmates to meet loved ones in an open picnic area from 9am to 5pm, six days a week. In some cases conjugal visits are allowed in private rooms. Officers believe such perks reduce tension inside the prison but, as the warden and officers reveal, along with these freedoms comes constant danger. Keeping Cedes under control, even on a good day, is no easy task.

Plunder The Crime of Our Time ( 2009 )
The Crime of Our Time is a hard-hitting investigative film by Danny Schechter. The "News Dissector" explores how the financial crisis was built on a foundation of criminal activity uncovering the connection between the collapse of the housing market and the economic catastrophe that followed. The film opens with the conviction of Ponzi King Bernie Madoff, whose acknowledged criminality drove a $65 billion dollar pyramid scheme. It argues that the wrong doing committed by a few individuals distracts from the real story, implicating the best-known institutions that financed and profited from fraudulent sub prime lending. This connection is now being investigated by the FBI as part of a probe into what it calls a "fraud epidemic." PLUNDER shows how these firms created special securities to repackage and resell these dubious loans after they were re-rated as Triple A. These firms then bet against many of these toxic assets with credit default swaps and other insurance scams. By leveraging these investments, they recklessly put trillions of dollars and the world economy at risk.

But with each telling, Billy the Kid\'s real story was further obscured. Born to impoverished Irish immigrants, the Kid led a hardscrabble, itinerant life that became harder still when his mother died of tuberculosis. He came of age in a lawless corner of New Mexico, caught in the middle of a many-centuries-old Irish-English conflict playing out on the Southwest plains.

The Stanford Prison Experiment ( 1971 )
The Stanford prison experiment was a study of the psychological effects of becoming a prisoner or prison guard. The experiment was conducted from August 14th to 20th 1971 by a team of researchers led by Psychology professor Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University. Twenty-four students were selected out of 75 to play the prisoners and live in a mock prison in the basement of the Stanford psychology building. Roles were assigned randomly. The participants adapted to their roles well beyond what even Zimbardo himself expected, leading the "Officers" to display authoritarian measures and ultimately to subject some of the prisoners to torture. In turn, many of the prisoners developed passive attitudes and accepted physical abuse, and, at the request of the guards, readily inflicted punishment on other prisoners who attempted to stop it. The experiment even affected Zimbardo himself, who, in his capacity as "Prison Superintendent," lost sight of his role as psychologist and permitted the abuse to continue as though it were a real prison. Five of the prisoners were upset enough by the process to quit the experiment early, and the entire experiment was abruptly stopped after only six days. The experimental process and the results remain controversial. The entire experiment was filmed, with excerpts made publicly available.

Winner of both the Directors and Filmmakers Trophy awards at the Sundance Film Festival, &#x22;Licensed to Kill&#x22; goes behind the media headlines of recent high-profile anti-gay murders to investigate their causes. Attacked by gay bashers in 1977, filmmaker Arthur Dong probes the hearts and minds of murderers convicted of killing gay men he faces them in one-on-one cell block interviews and asks them directly: &#x22;Why did you do it?&#x22; Probing on-camera interviews with seven convicted killers behind bars propel the narrative drive of &#x22;Licensed To Kill.&#x22; These inmates include a wide range of distinct profiles: a young man who claims he justifiably killed as protection from his victim&#x27;s sexual advances - a defense known as &#x22;homosexual panic&#x22;; a self-loathing, religious gay man who killed because of his own homosexual tendencies; a victim of child abuse who feared losing his manhood; an army sergeant angry over the gays in the military debate; and a self-described homeboy looking for easy prey.
