EXTRAMUROS, a sentence without walls

Written & directed by Catherine Rechard


Extramuros, a sentence without walls accompanies convicts who serve part of their sentence outside the walls of the prison. Speech plays a key role in the relationship that they develop with Marie, the educator at their side during the Exterior Placement step from which they benefit. It is a profound upheaval in the concept of punishment represented in the perspective of its two modes of execution.
