The Women-in-Prison Film: From Reform to Revolution

By • Feb 11th, 2013 • Category: Writings

My study of the Women-in-Prison film genre (which coincided with the making of my short film, Condemned) is featured in the new issue of Bright Lights Film Journal.

The piece tracks the history of the genre from Cecil B. DeMille’s Manslaughter (1922) to Jonathan Demme’s Caged Heat (1974). It was previously published as part of the NoirCon 2012 Program (pictured below), and available online now for the first time!
