New Folsom is one of California's maximum security prisons and a place where many inmates are serving life sentences. Swedish director Michel Wenzer opens the door to a different side of prison life than one we usually see on the big screen. He takes a look at Folsom's Arts in Correction programme, a scheme that has been running across prisons in the US since the 1970s. At Night I Fly captures gospel choirs, poetry readings and blues guitar sessions while following a group of characters who, with great eloquence, talk about the difficulties of life inside. A film about the sense of freedom that creativity can give, even in the most oppressive places. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Stranger than Fiction.
