Our Voices Are Rarely Heard

US Premiere — This short documentary offers a visceral snapshot at how inmates survive solitary confinement. With rare access inside Pelican Bay State Prison, filmmaker Cali Bondad and reporter Gabrielle Canon captured a day-in-the-life inside one of the most notorious “supermax” prisons in the U.S. This film shows a cinematic glimpse of the personal anguish and monotony described by inmates living in long-term isolation.

Cali Bondad – Director (USA)

Cali Bondad is a Director/Editor based in San Francisco. She is an active filmmaker and yields an amazing sense of framing and rhythm. She uses bright, bold imagery and inventive camera/editing techniques to tell interesting narrative. Her style is influenced by a combination of street photography and surrealism.

    An illuminating film. Endless solitary confinement is a practice that must be rethought.
