Feminist Flashback #46

A.k.a. Women in Prison, part 3 of 3

Wrapping up my mini-series of Feminist Flashbacks (parts 1 and 2 here and here, respectively), I bring you a documentary you probably haven't heard of, but that's well worth a watch: the 2006 British musical documentary about women in prison, directed by Brian Hill. Yep, you read that right, it's a musical! Aptly entitled Songbirds, this unconventional doc chronicles the lives, trials and tribulations of some of the 250 women incarcerated at Downview Prison in Sutton, England.

Want a little more information? Check out this review.
