900 Women

Running Time: 72 mins.
Genre: Documentary


Built in 1970 to house an increasing population of female convicts, the Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women (LCIW) houses the state's most dangerous female prisoners. The filmmaker follows six women -- a grandmother, a high school student, a pregnant woman, a recovering heroin addict, a prison guard, and the only woman in death row -- to deliver a portrait of live in this deceptively peaceful atmosphere.
