Letters from Silivri, dir. Adrian Figueroa, Germany 2021, 16 min.

For those who have spent years imprisoned, have had a loved one die at the hands of the police, or live threatened by their presence, the purpose and success of the police force and prisons is highly questionable.

Looking across our meagre carceral systems, this programme explores unjust incarceration and abuses of power. From experimental observations of police boots around Central London, testimonies from families left afraid and bereaved and an epistolary to freedom in Turkey, we can see the violence that builds a police force and the human cost of indefinite imprisonment.
